YouTube Aids In Study Of History

While we all have gone to YouTube for a good laugh at the expense of others, the service is growing more useful by the day. So much media has been posted relating to current events that students have picked up on its usefulness as a research tool. In a recent report I gave on 9/11, I found a ton of footage, half of which I didn’t even have time to review for research. Seeing the footage also aided in the emotion behind the work. Watching it takes you back to that day. You feel the same emotions.
