There are many diverse learning styles that educators need to reach. It is agreed upon by numerous research studies that 65% of the population consists of visual learners. In a Huffpost article from 2014, it states that video may be the best way to improve learning styles, especially when it comes to remembering key facts and figures. Forrester Research estimates one minute of online video equates to approximately 1.8 million written words. In addition, 90 percent of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text. This indicates visual education aids like video can improve learning styles and increase the rate at which we retain information.
