Today marks the one year anniversary of the launch of YouTube EDU, the video sharing site’s hub for educational content uploaded by colleges and universities. Designed as a vehicle to democratize learning, YouTube EDU has seen substantial success over the past year. Over 300 colleges and universities have joined the YouTube Partner Program and seven higher ed videos have seen more than one million views a piece.
Whether it’s full courses, guest lectures or faculty commentary, YouTube EDU is doing its part to keep quality educational content free and accessible. In a world of budget cuts and fee hikes that really is commendable.
To celebrate, I thought I would share a couple of my favorite videos from the past year.
