You Tube introduces “Learning Playlists” for educational videos.
YouTube’s playlist for educational videos will not be part of the platform’s recommendations algorithm.
Targeting teenagers, Google-owned content sharing app YouTube is bringing a new education feature called Learning Playlists with dedicated landing pages for educational videos on topics like math, science, music and language, free from algorithmic recommendations.
The free-from-recommendations Playlists would have organisational features like chapters around key concepts, ordered from beginner to advanced lessons to help viewers’ focus on their lessons without distractions.
