Would You Take A College Course on 'YouTube'?

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?

I think that the videos themselves are not that interesting, but when taken as a whole, can be interesting. Such as why some videos are played more than others when they are the most inane things, yet popular. The cultural reflections can be interesting to look at in a class.
