Abstract :

With the advancements in the technological age, teaching in the medical and health sciences no longer revolves around the traditional didactic and practical teaching pedagogy. Students now turn to other options for learning resources including social media. Research into the effects of social media on a student’s learning in the medical and health professional field has been well documented showing positive effects on learner’s satisfaction and feedback. The paper describes the YouTube channel created by the author and the hardware and software used to create teaching content for optometry teaching in the digital age, but also more recently during the COVID-19 pandemic.
