Youtubers will be able to offer videos with tutorials or teachings in the form of structured courses. They can be paid or free.
Google has announced the news that will advance educational tools on YouTube , with a new player without distractions and the possibility of offering paid courses .
Of these innovations, one is a new player, which the company calls ‘YouTube Player for Education’, designed for educational content, which does not show ads, external links or recommendations.
This player has been designed to be inserted into other educational applications, such as EDpuzzle or Purdue University, where it will show content for free and without distractions, as the company details on its blog.
How will youtubers courses work?
Next year, in addition, educational content creators will be able to offer their videos with tutorials or explanations as structured courses under a payment model or for free. This tool will be implemented first in the United States and South Korea, in a beta phase, before extending it to more countries.
For students, ‘Quizzes’ have been introduced, a tool that allows users to check what they have learned through questionnaires, with questions related to the content shared in the course.
These quizzes will be rolling out in beta “in the coming months,” and will be coming to all creators with the Community tab next year. ( EuropaPress )
