Edtech Series: Innovation in Learning

YouTube will offer a stripped-down version of its site tailored for schools and colleges, an attempt to get a foothold in the market for digital education tools. 

The video giant plans to license this service, called Player for Education, to education technology companies, which can then filter YouTube’s enormous library with different 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.
