YouTube launches an ad-free video player for education



YouTube new Feature

The Instant Video Streaming Platform- YouTube is making an effort to stripped-down the version of its site tailored for schools and colleges. The platform is taking the step to foothold in the market for digital education tools.

The video giant is also planning to license this service, called Player for Education, to education technology companies. Under this service, it will be easier for the audience to filter the vast library with restrictions. The service won’t run advertisements or serve video recommendations.

Initially, YouTube is working with EDpuzzle Inc., Purdue University Global Inc., and Google Classroom, a product from YouTube’s parent, Alphabet Inc.’s Google.

Google widens the Education Market as Students rush to Online

YouTube reveals that it will give all sales from its new service to creators whose videos play in classrooms for the first two years. Then YouTube will take a commission of sales. The company refuses to share how much its new service will cost.

YouTube is also planning to launch a new feature- Courses. It will let video creators offer online classes for a fee or free of charge.

Since the pandemic, Google has pushed deeper into education with its inexpensive Chromebooks and software. By one estimate, global tech spending is set to rise to $404 billion by 2025.

It is not the first step for YouTube in Education Market. For many years, the platform lobbied classrooms to use its ample educational and how-to videos. But those prior pitches were met with concern over the popular video service’s targeted advertising and abundant non-educational material.

YouTube is also bringing a new Quiz feature for Creators

YouTube also announced new tools for creators making educational content on the platform — including ways to charge viewers for their videos. Beginning next year, certain creators will be able to make free or paid “courses,” with playlists of videos set up for audiences. If a viewer buys a course, they’ll be able to watch the content ad-free and play the videos in the background. Courses will come to the US and South Korea first in beta.

YouTube also announces a new quiz feature that creators can set up in the community tab on their channel that relates to the educational content they make. The company will introduce quizzes in beta in the coming months
