Why Create a YouTube Channel?
Faculty can use a YouTube Channel to upload their own videos that can be shown in class. As well, the channel itself can be shared with students if they need to refer back to it.
Having a YouTube Channel can also allow you to favourite videos from other channels and make playlists from your own videos as well as from other people’s videos. This content can be organized into different categories such as per lesson or topic.
Playlists on YouTube can also be shared or found on the YouTube Channel under the playlist tab.
