Recently YouTube EDU , a section of YouTube that showcases videos from colleges and universities, celebrated its one year anniversary. This section of YouTube often gets overlooked by many users. It shouldn 't; it is a vault of free education that others pay thousands of dollars a year to access. For many of us in the marketing industry, college is a distant memory, but it doesn 't mean we should ignore the information being shared with today's students. After all, it could also help improve our own strategies.

Social media is a popular topic in marketing today, and it is also top of mind for journalism and business schools at colleges around the world. Check out the following social media videos found on YouTube EDU :

1. How to Be a Social Media Change Agent -- posted by HarvardBusiness
