Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 2, Sep 2022) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
YouTube recently released two articles related to their plans of making YouTube a learning center. A learning management system, LMS. LMS is a software that allows you to host online courses, have students, get paid for it and all of that, right? YouTube wants to become that platform. It’s very interesting the way they are thinking about it. I will link to a couple of articles, do have a look. As churches and ministries, we are all in the education business, right? It’s important for us to understand how social media companies like YouTube are thinking about education. YouTube says, there are already billions of people searching for stuff on YouTube. So instead of just showing free videos, we actually want to have online courses and we want to have a separate video player for education. Lots of interesting plans from YouTube. You definitely want to pass this on to your ministry media team.
