With generational shifts, it is crucial to utilize varied instructional delivery and teaching to provide quality learning for the students. Generation Z students are digital natives, which means they are highly inclined toward technology. For educators, they need to understand the relationship between technology and learning. Nowadays, vlogging is a form of media that has been incorporated into teaching to maximize students’ engagement. In light of this, this study aims to determine the impacts of vlogging on learning and the challenges encountered by the learners when vlogging. The researchers conducted interviews and employed a thematic analysis to synthesize and collect data. The findings of this study reveal that confidence boost, summarization skills, awareness of educational and technological tools, social media responsibility, and enhanced creativity are the beneficial impacts of vlogging on learning. Meanwhile, time-consuming, low-end cellular phones: insufficient phone storage and low camera resolution, intermittent internet connection, vlogging is less preferred than a written report, and increased expenses were the challenges the students experienced when vlogging. To address the concerns identified when vlogging, teachers ought to refine the utilization of vlogging in such a way that it is not too pressing on the students’ part. Considering also the educational shift brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, students are suggested to embrace vlogging as a new trend of learning. This study has vital importance within the millennium as technological advancement is becoming more complex. This research will also guide educators and researchers to refine the utilization of vlogging in learning to provide high-quality learning for the students. For future correlated research, a conduct a quantitative version of this study is recommended by the researchers.
