Due to COVID-19, our current education system has shifted from physical class to a remote and virtual class in which teachers are struggling to produce high-quality, engaging lessons and many parents are having to take on the additional role of their child’s teacher. This has been like a blessing in disguise because teachers have been opened not only to class but also to the outside world.

The largest benefit of YouTube is its ability to turn students into independent or self-reliant students. With the vast number of videos streamed on the site, such as instructional videos and documentaries, students can look for different sources of information and expand their knowledge over a topic.
