Educators’ YouTube Popularity Increases

Earlier this year, YouTube launched You Tube EDU, which aggregates video from colleges and universities. It now contains more than 20,000 videos. Included are campus tours, news about cutting-edge research and lectures by professors and world-reknowned thought leaders — not to mention actual full courses in a range of subjects.

At this time, it is only accepting qualifying two- and four-year degree-granting public and private colleges and universities, though it welcomes interest from other educational organizations, according to Obadiah Greenberg of YouTube’s Strategic Partnerships Team.

YouTube EDU requests only one channel per institution that encompasses the entire campus, and you must have authority to open a channel on the institution’s behalf. If you are a school, department, or educator within the institution, you are directed to coordinate with the proper department on campus (typically Public Affairs or Academic Technology).

New channel sign-ups and additions to the YouTube EDU directory will be on a periodic basis. Earlier this year, YouTube launched You Tube EDU, which aggregates video from colleges and universities.
