Discover the many benefits of using online video for visual learning. Using educational video for teaching the K-12 curriculum provides online learning for children and students of all ages and abilities.
Using subtitled video - or video with closed captions - enables children to choose between watching, listening to, or reading each presentation whichever best suites their individual learning style. A wonderful option particularly for dyslexia and special needs education.
Having the student read the subtitles on a second or third viewing without sound, enables the improvement of Reading and Literacy skills AND helps retention of the information being learned.
