YouTube University is becoming official

So one of the most interesting things about embarking on a phd on educational youtube is that *everyone* I tell about it shares a story of what they have learned on youtube. This morning’s example was my barista, who watches youtube to learn other types/the latest coffees/milks.

And youtube itself is starting to embrace the idea of it being a vast library for educational videos, as seen in this billboard ad:

I think that’s super interesting. I’ve been told by People In The Know that youtube is starting to think about and embrace the idea of education on youtube. Looks like I timed this phd rather perfectly, there are interesting times ahead!
