TOPS Student Creates YouTube Channel to Help Peers with Virtual Learning

Originally aired on FOX Houston – November 13, 2020

Texas Online Preparatory School (TOPS) student Steven Morris has started his own Youtube channel to offer online learning advice to his peers. In an interview with FOX Houston, Morris said he created the channel shortly after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I remember how lost I was when I first started [online learning],” he said. “I remember scrolling through YouTube and not finding anything. Even though they have orientations, I was better learning [the K12 platform] with peers.”

Morris cites “putting himself out there” and communicating with teachers as his greatest challenges which he overcame by simply raising his hand more and answering his teachers’ questions in live sessions.
