A Better Way to Learn From YouTube

YouTube is a popular destination for learning because it has how-to videos for almost anything. Naturally, some videos are better than others but there’s a lot of good information to be found. Unfortunately, when you find good info, the person that’s talking often gets off topic and wastes your time. So if you’re like most people, you skip over those parts.

In other words, this is how people learn from YouTube:

  1. They search for the topic they’re interested in
  2. Sort through the search results to find the best ones
  3. Watch and skip over the off-topic parts to focus on the best parts
  4. Try to remember which video had that essential tidbit of knowledge
  5. Wonder what they missed and search and watch some more to be sure
HowZone doesn’t think that’s good enough so we created a better way to learn from YouTube how-to videos. They’re called Video Journeys.

In a nutshell, a HowZone Video Journey is a collection of the best clips from the best videos on a topic. They deliver a concentrated and effective learning experience with no fluff.

It’s like gathering all the needles from all the haystacks.
We invite you and your friends to try them.

Next time you want to learn something by watching YouTube videos, take a look to see if HowZone has a Video Journey on that topic yet. If they do, you’re in luck — if there isn’t, it’s your chance to make one and gain some recognition for your effort.

People who make Video Journeys typically gain new knowledge while they’re creating it. Teaching is one of the best ways to learn.

Making a Video Journey is similar to what people already do while looking for good how-to information. And when it’s done, the world gains access to all the best information on that topic in one convenient place.

Check out the Video Journey introduction on the HowZone Home Page.

There’s more information in the HowZone Help Center. Check it out.

A special request: You probably have friends that are passionate about something. Maybe they’re an expert, maybe they’re an extreme hobbiest or maybe they just really enjoy telling people what they know. Please share this post with them, have them check out HowZone and tell them to create a Video Journey because the world needs to know what they know.

We can’t wait to see what you and your friends come up with!
