Due to the Covid-19 emergency, the Osaka City native English teachers (CNETs) were tasked with creating supplemental video lessons for all of Osaka’s public elementary 4th, 5th and 6th graders and all junior high school students. We made 36 videos in total. Using YouTube data metrics, we were able to assess how many students actually viewed the videos and get detailed data on their viewing habits.
