YouTube has launched YouTube Player for Education, a new YouTube-embedded player that shows content on commonly used education apps.
The player will be “without distractions” including ads, external links, or recommendations.
It is being developed in partnership with US edtech companies such as EDpuzzle, as well as Purdue University and Purdue Global.
The Google-owned company also announced that qualified creators can begin offering free ad-supported or paid ad-free educational courses on the platform.
The courses program will expand to more countries at an unspecified date following a beta in the US and South Korea.
YouTube is also beta testing a quizzing feature for education creators.
