Description: YouTube is an online video-sharing platform where users can view, comment, share, and upload videos. Users can search for all kinds of multimedia content, create channels, and interact with other users through likes, comments, and subscriptions. YouTube is free to use with advertisements. Users do not need an account to visualise videos, but are required to sign up to upload videos and gain access to functionalities such as commenting, adding videos to favourites, following channels, and more. YouTube is available for all kinds of devices in browser and app versions. It was developed by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim and was launched in 2005. In 2006, YouTube was acquired by Google.

Evaluation: YouTube is a practical and versatile tool for finding authentic material in a target language. Teachers can find tutorials, explanations, and examples of real-life speech, or even create their own video blog for students. YouTube can also be a collaborative tool where students create their own video projects, upload them on a class channel on YouTube, and comment on each other’s videos. Importantly, videos on a channel can be made visible only to those with a link to them. YouTube provides some editing tools when uploading a video that are easy to use.
