The Columbia University YouTube channel gives faculty, students, and the public access to Columbia-produced academic videos and enables instructors and administrators to share videos online for educational, promotional, and other uses.

The Columbia channel is integrated into YouTube's EDU portal, which aims to bring learners and educators together in a global video classroom. YouTube EDU organizes videos from universities, colleges, higher education institutions, and educational organizations.
