YouTube Turns Into An Incredible Education Resource With These Innovative Launches

While entertainment and education don’t usually go hand in hand, popular social media app YouTube is proving otherwise.

The company was recently seen launching a set of new features for those who consider it to be a great addition to the education sector. And that includes a new player for Classrooms that runs without ad breaks and another course that’s designed keeping education creators in mind.

Many feel the app is really working hard as your default go-to option when it comes down to education, home projects, or just a reliable way to get your homework done with guidance.

On average, new stats prove how 93% of viewers are using the platform to get the information that they feel they deserve. And today is the day the app has also introduced an ad-free education player for Classrooms.

This allows educators to put any content on display through the app without having interruptions that disturb the flow of learning and thinking. This will allow the content to arise without ads on various platforms owned by third parties too.


At the same time, the app is providing experienced creators the chance to provide free courses across the app. The company confirmed the news recently via a blog post that highlighted how the decision being taken was for the betterment of the app to give the ultimate educational environment for that in search of a little extra.

Without distractions coming in the middle, teachers may use the app for various aspects of their curriculum and even provide students with links that aren’t hindered by ads coming in the middle.

The app is allowing this by establishing great working partnerships with firms like EDpuzzle and even Purdue University, which plan to further expand in the future.

As it is, YouTube can already be found on Google Classroom, and around 150 million people are making use of the feature globally. Therefore, YouTube says the new player will be beneficial for a number of users on the education front who will benefit from better enhancements.

But that’s not all. YouTube isn’t stopping there. The app is giving education-based content creators the chance to deliver both paid and even free-of-cost programs. They hope to put more structured learning programs up for grabs.

You can find the new programs across the app but they’ll need to be purchased. This way, educators can benefit from making funds through their content.

Similarly, the move can assist in providing users with definitive skills and match their demands to deliver information videos that are linked to various courses.

The launch will reportedly take place in the US and places like South Korea first, right before we see it expanding to different nations soon. At the same time, this option will be present only for a few handfuls of creators at the start before we see a proper rollout.

Lastly, the platform is adding Quizzes. This is another great way for students to put their knowledge to the test. These will come with reference links that help reinforce the information that users already know. You can see this launch in beta soon.
