Broadcasting methods in the form of videos, animations, podcasts and other can play crucial role as alternative learning methods other than the traditional classrooms based environment (Chorianopoulos & Lekakos 2007).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
