YouTube recently released a new sub-site called YouTube EDU, aggregating thousands of free lectures from over a hundred universities across the country, including MIT, Yale, Harvard, Stanford, and many more.
YouTube has announced a name change for some of the features on its site. They are as follows:
Spotlight Videos – These are videos that YouTube are entertaining or educational for the masses, so they highlight them.
Promoted Videos – Originally called “Sponsored Videos,” these are the paid video ads – like paid search but for YouTube and with videos.
Featured Videos – These videos have gained popularity among YouTube’s users and therefore get prominent attention on the largest online video site in the world.
