YouTube and Research

It comes as no surprise that students use YouTube for fun and for research, because it's easy to use and has a lot of content. Respected music writer Norman Lebrecht writes about how he too has been pulled into YouTube.

Theatre researchers can also use YouTube to their benefit. Of course, as with any tool, you have to evaluate what you find here critically. But, YouTube can be very useful.
