A fellow edupreneur wanted to know what the pros and cons of joining a MCN (multi channel network) on YouTube would be. Though you might have never heard of MCNs, you have probably watched content from one of the big ones, nevertheless. There is Revision3, Machinima, TasteMade and a handful of others that usually specialize in one or two particular verticals like gaming, food or comedy.
The premise of the big MCNs is to support creators in the creation of video content on the one hand and get better advertising deals and show sponsors on the other. Sounds good, but won’t work in education.
