Introducing YouTube EDU!

Dan Colman, Open Culture, Mar 26, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Google's response to iTunes University: Dan Colman writes, 'Today, Google has launched YouTube EDU, which centralizes the content from over 100 universities and colleges. This robust collection gives you access to lectures by professors and world-renowned thought leaders, new research and campus tours. At the moment, you can access over 200 full courses from leading universities, including MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Yale and IIT/IISc. And it's all searchable within YouTube EDU." All very nice, but I would not equate a collection of large American universities with "Education". If Google is serious about 'Google Education', it should be posting educational videos, whatever their source, and not just acting as a proxy for marketing for the U.S. university system.
