UniSA a YouTube Education Partner

April 7, 2009

As part of our exploration into the social media channels we came across YouTube Partners. UniSA already has a presence on YouTube but being a partner offers a bit more. The main thing that being a YouTube partner would give us was extra branding options for our UniSA channel and allow us to upload longer videos.

We went through the application process and were informed that we probably weren’t eligible but we applied anyway. A few days later we received an email informing us that we’d been accepted as a YouTube Education Partner, something we’d not heard of before. The reason we hadn’t heard of it was because it is only very new and they must have been building the list of Edu Partners before the whole thing was announced.

Now people interested in university and college content can visit the YouTube Edu website to see what’s been the most viewed, most subscribed, and also view a directory list of Education Partners. At the time of writing UniSA is not on this directory. I’m not sure why a university can’t be added when they’re accepted into the program as surely it doesn’t take that long to do. We were informed that the list only comprises universities and colleges within USA, but we have noticed others outside of this.

As an institution we can only apply once to be an Education Partner but if other areas within the University feel they need their own channel we can link to it from ours. View the University of New South Wales’s channel (they’re also a YouTube Education Partner) and note the links from their main channel to the Community and E-Learning channels.
