Written text or Videos - which is the better tool to provide able guidance?In this thread Bhushan made an interesting suggestion, about seeking help via YouTube to learn something as the videos would have a better impact on the learner, as compared to seeking advice from members here. So let's take up this topic to discuss.
When we raise a query, whether in the forum or in our Ask Expert section, we get replies wholly in text form, and, on a few occasions, somebody may upload an image to explain a point. In the case of YouTube, we can learn something through a video that may or may not have written text as well on the screen. What do you consider is a better tool to guide you and help you learn? Do you prefer one over the other or always use only one of these? You could share your own personal experience, wherein you learned something wholly through a video (not necessarily at YouTube alone) or you learned something through only the written text of an article or blog post.
