YouTube offers a new service called YouTube College where students can join their college and share videos only with students from their college. This is an interesting move by YouTube. YouTube College allows students to post videos and create groups that are only available to others in the same college. You can experience everything that is going on (from party videos to commencement clips) at your college. This is fun for the college students. However, I think YouTube College has educational potentials in teaching and learning. It is likely that more students and teachers will take advantage of the YouTube College by posting their educational videos, lectures, and projects clips for their classes. Unfortunately, YouTube does not offer an educational category that makes it difficult for users to find educational content. To join your YouTube College, all you need to get in is an email address from your college. However, if you signed up on YouTube with a different email address, you can change it when you join.
