Comments from some of those that selected YouTube as one of their Top 10 Tools

 “Classroom, further education and personal usage. Who doesn’t use Youtube. I love it and find many wonderful sources on this tool. It is also easy to post video with and everyone has access.” Virginia Goen, 2015

“best “how to” training tool ever” 2015

“YouTube – you can learn how to do just about anything on YouTube. From my experience many people don’t think to go to YouTube to find out how to do something in the workplace e.g. Excel. It’s great for just in time performance support, however sometimes it takes a while to find quality learning videos”  Fleur Mouchemore, 2015

“I find myself drifting to YouTube when I need to see how to do something specific, but also for the general hunt-and-peck drifting to see what I might find.” Ben Carmel, 2015
