Youtube : The Open University

YouTube began as a video sharing platform. But over the years, it has grown to become much more. The modern day YouTube┬áis a place for everyone. Whoever you may be, YouTube has something or the other to offer. Specially if you’re looking to learn something new everyday.

YouTube is home to a host of educational videos on every topic, and from some of the best universities in the world – MIT, Harvard, Oxford etc. But the scope isn’t just limited to academia. Talented professionals from all over the world have made channels hosting tutorial videos in their specific skill set. You can learn everything – from painting like Da Vinci to dancing like Michael Jackson.

If we were to compare YouTube and try to fit it into a proper educational structure, it would be the world’s best Open University. Here, you don’t just learn one thing – you learn many. And you have fun while doing it. And as much as I would like to say that I made myself the person I am, the truth is that YouTube is responsible for the half of me.

I would like to end this post with a few original words of wisdom that embody YouTube’s grand capacity for ceaseless education. But instead, I’d like to steal Neil Degrasse Tyson’s words to mark the ending of this post.

Know more today than you knew yesterday.
