I'm only picking this one because it's the most well-known and people will most likely see your videos. If you ever want to make videos for the internet, YouTube is where they will most likely end up.

I agree with TornadoTemper. It has a lot of medical content, so students can learn a lot of things on YouTube. Luckily, it doesn't only contain scary creepypasta and horrible Adventure Time fan videos!

Yes, you can learn a lot of new things on YouTube and even find all those old TV shows, songs, advertisements, etc., you miss. The only irritating things are some fan videos, especially Adventure Time ones!

A common misconception I've been hearing is that anybody can add edits to Wikipedia. But the reality is, while anyone can edit, not everyone's edits will be accepted because they need to be reviewed by the administration. If the information is abusive or inaccurate, it will be removed.

Let's also not forget there are citations at the bottom of the page indicating where people get their information from. If anything, this site can be very useful.

Contrary to popular belief, Wikipedia is actually quite accurate and offers plenty of information about any topic. It saved my life when I was in secondary school, and I hope it will continue to do so through college.

The layout is clean and simple, and it works for the massive amount of information that some articles have. I recommend it to anyone.

4 TripAdvisor

Ever thought of planning a holiday abroad, going to a restaurant in the city, or even taking a tour around some caves? TripAdvisor's got you covered. With a large community and helpful reviews from the general public, you can avoid a disastrous trip.

My dad and I use TripAdvisor before going to any hotel, restaurant, etc. It has yet to let us down. Before using TripAdvisor, my dad and I went to a horrible hotel that advertised itself as a 4-star. Now, thanks to TripAdvisor, I've been to 2-star hotels that feel as good as the usual 4-star ones.
