With the advancement of digital technology, communication does not rely solely on linguistic mode, but through other modes as well which are visual, gestural, spatial, audio. This has also been embraced by education experts who promote to leverage a combination of those modes which was known as multimodalities in learning, believing that learners will learn better when they experience learning in variety of ways that can accommodate various learning styles. When multimodalities approach is implemented in learning, students learn and read texts using various modalities and are not dependent only on printed texts; many would find reading materials from YouTube videos produced as learning media. Using narrative inquiry and content analysis approach, this research paper presents the strengths and weaknesses of utilizing multimodalities in learning focusing on how well or accurate students can comprehend learning materials when they learn through watching You Tube videos that they later expressed it on a Google Site developed as their learning artifact. Data was collected through a survey and end-of-the-semester reflection students wrote after attending the course, besides analyzing the accuracy of the content of their Google Site. The results show a competition between students’ comprehension versus creativity as the impact of the modalities utilized, and in turn, teachers / lecturers must find strategies to balance or prioritize between the two.
