Abstract
"Study with me" is a phenomenal video topic on the internet. In these videos, university students document their study process and share/livestream these videos online. Through ethnographic research on "study with me" videos and its virtual community within Bilibili, this project expects to understand why self-study videos perpetuate on the internet, evaluate the efficiency of this new study style, and examine the mentality and rationality behind this cyber self-study phenomenon. Based on investigations on Bilibili, SWM videos, and interactions within this virtual study space, this thesis concludes a manual grounded by student-initiated study habits that can be employed by educators and institutes to make online education more accessible and inclusive in the new normal of post-COVID.
