What have you learned from watching YouTube tutorials?
One of the things I learned was crocheting a few years ago, by watching YouTube tutorials.
I have learned a great deal from watching Youtube Tutorials. I particularly like the TED and TEDx Talks. I've gained a lot both in my particular interests of Public Speaking and Storytelling, but also in such areas as Self-understanding.
On top of this I watch the various stuff put up about Modern History and even the Occult and Supernatural items. There is a great deal on Youtube. And if you take notes - keep note books - you could probably become as well educated as a lot of higher-level intellectuals after a few years.
My recommendation: Watch some Youtube every day.
Thanks for the recommendation. I have not really considered it for those purposes before.
Tom that's true, real knowledge and history can be found on YouTube videos. I found out a lot about black history, which is so amazing. Didn't learn true history in school, videos have taught me that black ancestors are the real Jews in the Bible.
I go along with Tom on the tutorials. Almost anything that has a tutorial can be found on You Tube. I watch new video games being tested, software programs being explained, etc.
I got a drone for Xmas, and there are many videos showing how to fly it.
I can find TV and Movies that I can't find in other places, or that cost a fortune to watch on paid services.
It is not just humorous, or strange personal videos.
I have leaned to do things the right way and the wrong way. I have watched mainly product reviews or How-To's for home repairs - appliances, and before I built my desk top PC. For the PC adventure it was very useful for both of those purposes. I am thinking of crocheting and/or knitting for a hobby soon. I think I will explore those. Thanks for the recommendation.
Tim yes there's tutorials on fixing things, I'm current fixing my daughter Windows 8 computer. I've been working on her computer for about a month now, helped to get rid of the virus and has made the PC faster. Constantly restarting PC for updates.
Only yesterday I was watching an instructional Youtube on the basics of electricity and the various merits of DC and AC current. Animated diagrams with dialogue can teach us far more than simply reading about such subjects.
Tom, that's cool. YouTube could slow down business for car mechanics. Because I know individuals that buy their own parts, and install the auto parts while watching tutorials. Everything can't be copied from YouTube, but videos also helps our Hubs.
My 13 year old uses YouTube instructional videos all the time - he's a budding "gear head" and has learned a lot about how to fix bicycles, small motors, lawn mowers, etc.
When he was studying rope tying in Cub Scouts a few years ago I used YouTube to learn how to tie several different knots so I could demonstrate them to the Scouts!
about the universe and other concepts in physics, how to use specific software such as Photoshop and illustrator. Programming languages and databases, religion, history and lots more.
I stopped learning for a while when YouTube was blocked in this country... glad its up again... its a very powerful tool for learning.
Hi Irfan, the videos are very powerful tool for learning many things. I've learned a couple new hobbies from tutorials; making jewelry and crocheting. I often watch hair videos and food recipes videos. YouTube is a blessing when used for goodness.
I use YouTube tutorials when I want to see instructions on how to do something I need to do or am interested in learning more about the topic.
