Abstract

Although it has only been two years since the initiation of the youtube; many have already started referring to the “youtube era”. It has had a major impact on many areas including politics, entertainment, and communal standing. The premise of this paper is that educators and instructional designers can make use of youtube within course design for different reasons, including its popularity, low expenses, and variability in potential uses, especially when used innovatively in different contexts. The paper presents an overview of youtube, offers different potential approaches for incorporating youtube related activities in different educational contexts, and addresses general issues related to such approaches.
