YouTube EDU Turns One Today

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.
