Would You Take A College Course on 'YouTube'?


After realizing most of the videos on YouTube are low quality and plot-less, Alexandra Juhasz, who is a media studies professor at Pitzer College in Claremont, California, decided the phenomena needed to be studied.

Juhasz has created a course she calls "Learning from YouTube," which allows Pitzer students to take a better look at the content posted on the site. Professor Juhasz and her students meet in a real class room, but most of the content of the course is available virtually on its "Learning From YouTube" channel. YouTube is "a phenomenon that should be studied," student Darren Grose told Newsvine. "You can learn a lot about American culture and just Internet culture in general." I think it's a fun idea, but do you think any of the content on YouTube is really college credit worthy?
