    Hi Hesham,

    Thanks Hesham for talking my points on educational videos. Personally, I love educational videos so that I decided to create a cool YouTube video. It is because online videos allow students to see and hear information, events or experiments. Also, educational videos make invisible things to visible. For example, you can demonstrate a science concept that is difficult to teach or learn by writing and reading but educational videos or simulations make it easier for students to understand comprehend because of the fact that educational videos and simulations can visualize things. Also, I believe educational videos can eliminate the boredom of courses. However, instructors should be careful on selecting videos because the videos should be appropriate with the contents and courses. Educational videos that will be used in the course should encourage students to reach the objectives of courses.

    Best, Cesur
