I'm interested in what delivery format you prefer for online courses as a learner. Select the format that best matches your learning style and needs, the one you'd prefer to get the majority of the content given a choice.
In a few days I'll update this post to tell what's my preferred format and why I'm asking this question.
As promised, here is some context on my question.
First off, I stronly prefer text courses. To the point I never take video courses, not even if they are free.
I suspected I may not be alone, hence the poll. As I write this, the poll got 19 votes with these results:
Video is hot, so I did expect the majority of votes to go to this format. But, to me, the most interesting takeout is a non-negligible preference for text, much larger than I thought. Text is where I want to focus my course creation efforts as it matches my learner and creator preferences. And, hopefully, the format may be a selling point in an interesting niche of the course market.
I run the same poll on Twitter and got 13 votes:
Another takeaway is, although podcasts and audiobooks are hot, there's apparently no interest in course content delivered through audio.
Some of you pointed out in the comments there are other considerations for selecting a delivery format, such as the subject matter. And a course can of course include various formats and media.
Thanks to all of you who voted and contributed feedback in the comments.
