The author offers the YouTube video clip "Diagnosis Wenckebach" as an example of how "pull" learning approaches, which stress learner participation through social networking technologies, can be incorporated within a traditional "push" education model. Uploaded in 2007, the video uses music, visuals, and rhymes as mnemonic devices to illuminate Wenckebach's Phenomenon. However, the author cites several problems in using YouTube videos in a learning situation such as the accuracy of the featured information and equity of access issues.
