Thursday (Mar. 26, 2009) Google launched YouTube EDU, a new site that organizes the video channels of more than 100 colleges and universities. At the moment, you can access over 200 full courses from leading universities, including MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Yale and IIT/IISc.
YouTube Edu video contents vary ranging from academic courses to campus news events to information for prospective students. The site lets viewers browse videos by school (directory) or search by subject. Currently, the videos from the University of Minnesota on the science of “Watchmen” and HIV/AIDS advancements are among the most viewed along with others such as “Advanced Finite Elements Analysis,” a lecture from the Indian Institutes of Technology, and a mass performance of University of Kansas’s alma mater.
