I think Video is the most comfortable way to learn something especially tutorial. I prefer to watch YouTube when I want to learn these. E-Books and Articles are great for the time you need a brief description.

Article. I can highlight and save smth, with video I have to put extra time for writing

Articles and video. However it gets tougher to find a truly informative and useful articles

@marina_korobka I agree, there are a lot of click baits with unqualified content or limited content to promote something else...

@cica_laure_mbappe indeed! And there are so many articles with irrelevant to my question content(( If I search the article useful features on Etsy, I don't want to read the first half of the article about what is Etsy and its history. It's just an example, but gosh it's annoying((

It strongly depends on the subject and context you're in. Personally, I use 50/50 mix of video and articles. BTW, does anyone know a great tool to make video highlights? Or to attach a note to specific time?

@artkhromov I agree with you. I would go for articles to learn how to take care of my plants, but I'd watch videos to learn something more technical (like sewing).

I learned adobe premiere to create promo videos for our app all through video tutorials. There is so much available and being able to create quick videos as needed is a really helpful skill when launching a new product.

@hannah_wright1 that's great ! Nothing is better than videos to learn how to make videos. Thanks for sharing 😉

None of these - I want a problem to solve and a reference to learn the vocabulary I need to Google and get things done. Interactive tutorials are best for me - stuff like the learn panel in Adobe apps these days is great. Or a good set of documentation to get that vocabulary in my head. I need to be able to try things and fail safely, and ideally, have some context about why the right answer is the correct answer. I usually apply this to learning new programming languages, but I think it’d be great with learning foreign languages, and when I was trying to learn to invest, I just threw money at things until I found out paper trading exists.
