Ever since the internet has taken the world by storm, media-based content has been a key part of the network as a whole. Videos have always been a popular way of spreading content in an entertaining yet knowledge-filled way. Due to our wiring, many humans are in fact, visual learners. Similarly to a child in school, not everyone learns the same – videos not only provide a completely new platform to learn from but entertainment, communication, and connectedness.
