5 emerging education channels on YouTube
Class is in session.
We all know by now that YouTube is for a lot more than just your average cat video, but perhaps only those of us who have needed to get in some fast cramming for a history test know about the video platform’s educational value. Yes, YouTube is full of channels and videos dedicated to expanding your mind, covering high school test topics, higher-level learning, and those things we’re just curious about at all ages.
In the following growing YouTube channels, found via Openslate‘s Emerging Talent Tracker tool, are aimed at university students (one’s actually a virtual university’s channel), high school students (explaining, for instance, the plots of typical, school reads like “To Kill a Mockingbird”), and everyone else (uncovering the secrets of the brain and detailing conspiracy theories). See what you can learn by checking out these five channels:

Exploring the brain, BrainCraft (yup, we’ve got another self-explanatory YouTube channel title) seeks to explain the neuron firings and gray matter happenings behind various physical phenomena, from recognizing Jennifer Aniston (their example, not mine) to finding certain things repulsive. Unsurprisingly, this is a PBS Digital channel.
