USask faculty improve student learning with high-quality YouTube content

Two University of Saskatchewan faculty members, Dr Joe Rubin and Carolyn Doi, responded to the shift to online teaching by posting high-quality online material on YouTube. Rubin noted that academics can learn from the well-produced online content that students view on YouTube. During the pandemic, Rubin started publishing videos for his microbiology course on YouTube and uploading open-access slides onto Flickr. Doi’s YouTube channel hosts tutorials and slideshows on music research created for a course she taught at USask. Both academics expressed that it was important that their content live beyond the confines of a course “If you’re putting in all that extra time, you might as well share as widely as possible,” said Doi.
