YouTube has announced a suite of new products to YouTube Education that will enable learners to explore subjects they are passionate about and creators to provide structured learning content. Like YouTube Gaming being a destination for gaming content, YouTube Education will be a destination for educational videos organized by topic and level, allowing educators to access content whenever possible without being subjected to forceful ads.
Every day, people visit YouTube to discover something new. People use YouTube to expand their lives with new knowledge in a variety of ways:
- Studying for class assignments.
- Learning a foreign language.
- Considering a different profession are all common examples.
YouTube is becoming a Google search engine for education topics.
According to a recent study performed by YouTube, 93% of viewers report using YouTube for information in similar ways as Google search in 2021. Why is that? Because YouTube is built in similar ways to track content just as well as Google search, 85% of parents believe that Youtube is a valuable learning tool for children 13 and under.
YouTube has become one of the most popular online destinations for people of all ages when it comes to consuming content. While it is primarily known as a source of entertainment, YouTube is also a potent educational tool.
YouTube provides access to a wealth of information on virtually any topic imaginable, and its user-friendly interface makes it easy to find the specific videos you are looking for. In addition, YouTube offers a unique opportunity for educators to reach a global audience. With YouTube, educators can easily share their knowledge with people worldwide.
Moreover, YouTube is not just a powerful educational resource; it is also an increasingly important platform for businesses.
As more and more businesses create YouTube channels, they can reach a wider audience and cost-effectively promote their products and services. In short, YouTube is a versatile and powerful tool that can be used for both educational and commercial purposes.
According to another study conducted by YouTube, in 2021, 79% of small businesses would agree that YouTube is a cost-effective way to provide staff training. It’s easy to archive content and keep it private for employees. Companies also don’t need to worry about storage since YouTube offers that.
How YouTube Plans to Make Education Content More Accessible with Youtube Education Suite
YouTube is introducing a new player explicitly designed for use in educational environments. The new player will be free of distractions like ads, external links, and recommendations. YouTube plans to expand upon the existing YouTube embedded player in Google Classroom.
YouTube plans to partner with established tech companies such as EDpuzzle, Purdue University, and Purdue Global. Eventually, they plan to offer more platforms as they work out licensing agreements.
YouTube also plans to allow creators to add free and paid content in a more accessible format. The Courses offered on this website provide viewers with in-depth, structured learning experiences. Viewers who choose to buy the course can watch the video ad-free and play it in the background. The Courses will be available first in the United States and South Korea in beta before expanding to more countries.
Creators can now use quizzes to help viewers test their knowledge. For example, if someone creates a series on algebra, they can make a quiz related to the concept taught in their latest video. Quizzes will be available to all creators with the Community tab in the coming months.
To help ensure that learning remains a priority for everyone, YouTube has made it easier to find educational content on the platform. They’ve added grade-level options and topics for users- whether students at home or creators looking towards their next project -to explore different avenues when searching through videos online. Their goal is always to keep making education simpler and easier to access.
According to a quote from Jess Chan on the Coder Coder YouTube channel, “Learning a new skill, like how to code, can be so difficult — from knowing where to start to where to go next — it’s a lot for someone to do on their own, and it’s easy to get lost. On my YouTube channel, Coder Coder, I’ve helped millions of viewers learn how to code and stay motivated throughout their coding journey. I’m so excited to be able to offer my viewers Courses, to help bring more even structure to their learning, provide exclusive content, and, ultimately, enable them to be even more successful in their careers.”
