An excellent article from the author.
When we see an object, it makes the best impression on our mind and we can understand it better. When somebody explains the same object in his own words, the impression we will get will never be equal to the impression we get when we see the object. That is why we all feel cinema is a medium which makes a good impact on society than a novel or a story. The effect you get when a story is picturised and shown before you will be very effective than listening or reading the same story. Many of us will remember what we saw in a movie once than reading the same in a book even twice or thrice.
The same principle is applicable to these videos that are used for online education also. That is why these online videos are creating a very good impression on the students and coming in handy to all the teachers to explain the important points in a better way to the student.
