Zoe’s Answer

Hi Andre,

If you are interested in pursuing YouTube as a career, you can definitely go to any school with a great program for film or design. The general LA area has some great film schools such as UCLA and USC and many opportunities to gain hands on experience with video projects.

Hi Andre,

It depends on the context of college. There are remote study opportunities from multiple universities in today's era, and where online study has been very helpful for students who have commitments. e-Learning modules have become very popular and a lot of online courses can help you achieve that. Take Udemy for example - it serves as a platform to help you with understanding the basics of different computer programming languages. Such is Coursera. Youtube is the central hub for video sharing and a has a lot of potential to transform complex matters into exciting and engaging experience.

On the other hand, Youtube also has university specific channels, Cambridge University for example. It helps in streamlining content from the university channel. All of these can help you decide on the best platform for attaining certifications / course completions / basic knowledge infusion. This would not necessarily provide you platform for attaining a degree handed over by a university (which would be a paid option such as online / distant learning)

Arundeep recommends the following next steps:

Choose the career path and the courses that offer you to build on the career path
Saved!
Identify if you have options to obtain a course completion or certification from multiple platforms (Google)
Saved!
Check for online / distant learning modules that help you with the same, and make a decision based on the weight of the results of online modules from university or courses from Youtube etc
Saved!

Because YouTube in and of itself is not a “Job” whether you make money from it or not. Nor is it in and of itself a “Career” its a platform/venue. ... If you are able to be successful in YouTube it typically requires certain skills, such as video editing, video production, social media, and so on.
