November 18, 2020

See ehn, let’s say the truth. YouTube is and will forever remain greater than (y)our university lecturers. But we know that you like arguments, so we will give you facts to back up our opinion.

1. YouTube is never late to class.

You know how you have classes and your lecturer comes in like 1 hour late. YouTube cannot stand you up like that. With YouTube, agreement is agreement. It is there to serve you tirelessly. And this is one of the many things you can learn from it:

2. Is there anything your lecturer cannot explain? Come to YouTube

Just one video and you are eligible for a Fulbright scholarship and the MacArthur Genius Award.

3. You can pause, play, rewind, fast forward a lesson on YouTube.

Try tuning your lecturers like that. Just ordinary “I’m lost” that you said, they are telling you to “Find yourself.” YouTube can never do you dirty.

4. Do you want to hear a secret? Some of your university lecturers also turn to YouTube.

The ones who know sha. The others rely on their notes from the Ojukwu era. Heaven and earth may pass away, but they will never update those notes.

Don’t be like them. Click here for tips on how to take notes effectively.

5. Your lecturer does not have the wide range of knowledge that YouTube has.

YouTube has everything from Mathematics to Literature to Astronomy to Physiotherapy.

Can your lecturer teach consistently for the duration of the lesson without deviating? YouTube can. Click here to try learning about Fish Farming, for example. See if YouTube won’t blow your mind.

7. YouTube can entertain and teach you at the same time.

No cap. Try cracking a joke with some of your lecturers and see if they will not remove your name from the attendance.

But YouTube has a premium collection of entertaining and educational content you shouldn’t miss out on. Click here to get started.

With these few points of ours, we hope that we’ve been able to convince and not confuse you that YouTube is greater than your university lecturer because YouTube has an endless stream of content. With YouTube, na you go tire. But with your lecturer, well, Jehovah take the wheel.
