Learning from YouTube

Professor Alexandra Juhasz of Pitzer College has said this class is a “pedagogic experiment focusing on the potentials and limits of digital-media culture.” Unlike most college courses, Learning from YouTube is open to the public, which mirrors YouTube's usership.

The class meetings, syllabus and other documents are even posted on the video-sharing site.
