This week, YouTube announced their plan to invest $20 million to content creators to encourage them to share more, better videos in their video platform.
Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube in her blog post stressed upon their commitment to empowering both the creators who want to share their knowledge to the world and users who are there to learn from the platform.
The investment is YouTube plans at supporting content creators and consumers in the education community as part of their YouTube Learning extension announced earlier on in July, 2018. The investment will provide funding for educational creators on the platform, a new “Learning” channel with curated playlists, and resources and support for EduTubers. YouTube-funded videos will also give brands more opportunities to run ads and sponsor content.
