YouTube is a video-sharing website that runs on user-generated content. Brown's YouTube Channel is home to various interesting and noteworthy lectures and presentations. It is also home to videos displayed previously on Brown's homepage.
Since 2011, all YouTube accounts must be linked to a Google account. You can either use your existing @brown.edu account or create a new Gmail account for your department. Either way, the email address you use with the YouTube account will not be visible to the public unless you choose to display it.
Determine if your department produces enough consistent video content to warrant an individual channel. If you do not produce video content on a monthly basis, a YouTube channel may not be the best option for you. Instead, University Communications can upload your existing video content to Brown's YouTube channel and create a Playlist for your department.
