Just wanted to send out a quick birthday wish to YouTube EDU, which celebrates its first birthday today. The site now features over 65,000 academic videos and 350 full courses, many coming from universities like Stanford, Yale, and MIT. My program at Stanford has happily contributed 12 courses to the collection (find them here), and they’ve been downloaded by thousands of viewers across the world. It’s all very gratifying.
If you want to learn more about YouTube EDU, you can read this piece I posted shortly after it launched. But, better yet, you should give the site itself a visit. And, to the folks at YouTube, keep up the good work!
PS If you’re looking for more intelligent content on YouTube, you should peruse our page that highlights the smartest video channels on the Tube. NASA, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Google Talks, TED Talks — they’re all listed here.
Thanks for the bday wishes, Dan, and for all you do to help people discover great open educational content.
