YouTube EDUcation Channels

Posted: March 4, 2012 in All Categories

With a bevy of new channels on YouTube popping up everyday, “Get your learn on at YouTube EDU,” says an erudite young student in a video promoting YouTube’s latest channels. Launched in 2009, YouTube EDU is a collection of more than 500,000 free videos from organizations and institutions such as PBS, Khan Academy and Harvard University.

Video questions come from educators at recently added channels: Deep Sky Video (astronomy), TED-Ed (a channel from the organizers of TED talks), Crash Course (an educational channel from The Vlog Brothers), the Sci Show and The Spangler Effect (famed science teacher). Each click will take you to a new screen.

Are you a brainiac? Join Professor Koval and his star pupil Olivia on a five question journey to see if you have what it takes to be a YouTube EDU star.

At the end of this video you’ll be asked the first question, which you should answer using the annotations embedded in the video. This will automatically take you on to the answer, and to the next question. Each of the five questions comes from a different YouTube EDU partner. At the end of the quiz you’ll receive your score (every score has its own reveal video, so play multiple times!).

Completing the quiz is a worthwhile effort — there are different endings depending on how well you do. What do you think ?
