The current research project investigates the relationship between a new search engine for instructional videos and the academic performance of university-level students and instructors. During the new-age of virtual learning, the hindrance of social interaction combined with the sudden increase in digital screen time has negatively impacted the mental health and in turn, the academic performance of many students because they are not being able to focus or concentrate on their work. A study proposed to determine if a new academic tool provides help for students academically utilized participants, who were recruited through email communication to various universities across America, to use the engine and record their grades on academic assignments and poll their opinions on the product. Currently, the research is still in progress and has no definite conclusion.
