YouTube has become synonymous with web-based, user-produced videos for entertainment and instruction. It offers some unique features that make it a perfect venue for delivery of online instruction. Data was collected to assess student attitudes toward the use of YouTube as an instructional delivery medium in an online section of a preservice educational technology course. The data was coded into the following themes: (a) personalized connection with the instructor; (b) the instructional benefits of video; and (c) seeing effective uses of technology modeled in a technology class. This paper summarizes why YouTube is a suitable media for online delivery and details the results of the research.
