YouTube and Colleges Team Up For Free Online College Content
Popular online video site YouTube is making a bid to be the official site for video distance learning: it is partnering with over 100 prestigious colleges and universities for exclusive college course content under its subset YouTube EDU.
Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Yale and UC Berkeley are among the more than 100 schools that have partnered with YouTube to make an official channel for higher learning.
YouTube now offers content straight from the classroom or lecture hall, as well as promotional videos like campus tours. Some colleges have even posted videos of guest lecturers, introductory classes and even a full semester's course.
The concept of this so-called "free higher learning" has become a crucial outlet during a time when many are finding college unaffordable and the ranks of the unemployed continue to grow.
This decision follows in the footsteps of several other well-executed attempts at opening up distance learning opportunities, such as MIT's 2002 OpenCourseWare project and Berkeley's first forays into webcasts back in 1995. According to executives from YouTube, this new partnership is addressing the wants and needs of the growing number of individuals in the world with a desire to better their lives via online education.
