Today teachers struggle to make their ideas easy to understand and in this continues fight new technology don’t change teaching, but can help teachers to introduce new methodologies and learning environments. According to Chris Anderson, TED [1] “What Gutenberg did for writing, online video can do for face-to-face communication.” Blogs and video tutorial support reflection, monitoring, planning, organizing, etc. Since 1999 the Department for Distance Learning within the University of Bucharest has updated new technologies to department needs, and therefore the Department for Distance learning maintained a high standard of quality and accreditation.

In the last years, the Department for Distance Learning has started to use Google Apps in education and video tutorials.

This paper explores the impact of video tutorials on students within the Department for Distance Learning, University of Bucharest, Romania.

Video tutorials give teachers the opportunity to publish instructional videos and to share thoughts, lesson plans, and other resources, based on collaborative activities developed with their students or colleagues. Why use video tutorial? It’s simple: because students learn more, because they enjoy them and it’s easy to use it. Do you know there are more than 1 billion users on youtube [2] and their main purpose is to create, share and discover original videos created by original people? Ad-hoc surveys, performed by the authors, revealed the following facts: ALL the students have electronic equipment (terminals) with Internet connection; ALL students used at least once Youtube tutorial to learn how to do something, ALL students considers that video tutorial are a “+” in their learning process.
