The Construction department goes viral

Hugh Baird (@hughbaird) College’s Course Leader in Construction Multi Skills, David Manley, has recently taken his virtual learning one step further by creating his own YouTube channel. The channel features ‘how-to’ videos specifically for his students to ensure they don’t miss out on the practical elements of their course. Brickwork and The Built Environment students have really benefited from this new way of learning. The content filmed by David, features real working practices and activities from mid-size and new development construction sites. The videos give learners a real understanding of the practical elements associated with their trade and how these techniques can be put into practice. During the live videos, students are encouraged to join in at home and can ask questions throughout.
