Hi all,

I'm working on pulling together research that deals with informal education/educational spaces/educational communities on YouTube (i.e., not profs or teachers who are using YouTube in the classroom, but people who are creating educational content and aren't affiliated with an educational institution - e.g., the Vlogbrothers' videos, the Nerdfighter community, Veritasium, CPG Grey, etc). I've posted to the Air-Grad listserv, and although I received messages saying the line of research was interesting and asking me to pass info along, I didn't hear from anyone doing similar research.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks!
