YouTube EDU is Google’s library of 700,000+ high-quality educational videos from partners like Khan Academy, Stanford and TED-Ed. The site allows users to discover, create, and share educational videos. Students can use YouTube EDU to find short lessons to supplement learning, watch full courses from the world’s leading universities, professional development material from fellow educators, and inspiring videos from global thought leaders. Users can choose to browse through three learning channels: Primary & Secondary for K-12 resources, Higher Education for college & university content & Lifelong Learning that includes everything from museums to language instructors. Each channel is then broken down into specific subject areas with the option to search by keyword. Users can subscribe to particular channels for updates, create playlists to keep track of videos you want to watch later or create a “watch list” of bookmarked videos.
