Students of IIT-Bombay’s media and film division have set up a YouTube channel to keep the public updated of the institute’s activities.
Known as IIT Bombay Broadcasting Corporation (IITBBC), the site will feature all activities held on the campus.
The channel was launched on August 25. There are currently 21 videos on the site. IIT-Bombay has around 7000 students and 4000 members of staff.
According to reports, between 15 and 20 students will work on updating the channel. The students involved will follow a roster system to make sure that their studies will not be affected.
Although IIT videos are available on YouTube, students behind the channel claim that theirs is the first channel for an institute in India.
Expect to view sports, cultural, technical fests on the channel. There will also be interviews with professors and campus news.
The channel had 319 subscribers and 10 comments in praise of the work. The last video was uploaded a week ago.
