Lecturers will always have a special place in our hearts. After all, no one can mafia you in the same way that your lecturer can. He doesn’t announce a quiz and then all of a sudden it’s 10% of the final grade. Anyway, I’m getting off topic. Lecturers do something very important that no one can replace, but these days, you really can learn things on YouTube, and here are some reasons why YouTube is a better teacher than your lecturer.
YouTube Doesn’t Give You Unannounced Tests
If you actually wanted your students to pass, you would give them time to prepare for a quiz right? You wouldn’t just show up and expect them to remember formula from 5 lectures ago. Oh and if you don’t show up to the lecture at all, that’s a different issue altogether.
YouTube Is Never Late To Class And Doesn’t Cancel
When your lecturer doesn’t show up on time, it can be frustrating. That’s why you rushed to the lecture hall so that you wouldn’t miss anything, and they end up coming in late. It’s even worse when they cancel because they could have cancelled beforehand and you wouldn’t have had to come to class in the first place. YouTube would never do that to you.
You Can Pause And Rewind On YouTube
On YouTube, when you miss something, you can just rewind and make sure that you get it before you continue with the rest of the video. With your lecturers, however, their reaction alone to you not understanding something that they have already explained 3 times can be harsh.
YouTube Doesn’t Feel The Need To Tell You About Things That Happened In His/Her Time
What’s a Ghanaian lecture without your lecturer telling you about how things used to be in their day, and how they used to be such a hard worker. Well, you’ll get none of that guilt from YouTube. Just a lesson and some jokes here and there.
