"I’m very excited about the possibilities with Boost and can’t wait to incorporate it into my teaching! As an educator and YouTube creator I have experienced the power of video first hand. The level of student engagement with a topic is often determined by the personality of the instructor, and video provides the opportunity for this to come across much more than with writing alone. If you can entertain the students, as well as inform, engagement is much higher, and inevitably increased achievement will follow."
