Teaching With YouTube

Starting in 2009, Professor Liberatore and his students at the Colorado School of Mines created YouTube Fridays. The first 5 minutes of Friday's class included student-selected YouTube videos relating course topics to the real world. Choosing videos later turned into a class assignment where students write problems that reverse engineer videos. A series of papers on the YouTube pedagogy are available on the Engineering education page

More recently, we are studying engineering student problem solving skills when solving student-written YouTube problems with support from the National Science Foundation.

In May 2020, we created a YouTube channel listing hundreds of videos selected by student over the years. Visit our YouTube channel here.
