My learning preference
Before I completed this module I thought that my preference was Video. I guess it is is because I am a Kinesthetic learner. I'll be honest, I have thoroughly enjoyed all the three modes Video, Voice & Text (In the order). Each had it's own benefit. I think more than the mode of Learning the quality of content that's being consumed defines the engagement of the Learner.
