Throughout my college education, I frequently used YouTube. Because YouTube has vast amount of videos and a links to other videos, it is sometimes hard not to watch the next or related video.

Another example that I remember is when I took biology class. I remember that it was time before exams and was struggling with DNA and RNA make up and other concept. I remember that I looked them up and once I had watched a video that was created through computer graphics, everything started to make sense.
