VLC (Linguistic) YouTube-channel breaks the 100,000 views barrier only 8
months after its launch!

For many years, the linguistics classes at the University of Marburg have been
supported by multimedia learning units, so that the in-class phases can be
used almost entirely for practice. The platform for the exchange of content is
the Virtual Linguistics Campus (www.linguistics-online.com). Registration is
free and entitles you to use a variety of options, e.g. more than 350
linguistic e-learning units or the Language Index with over 1,000 audio
examples of the world's languages.

Since the April 2012 all linguistic classes have also been linked to
linguistic videos (E-Lectures, Suggestions for In-Class Activities,
Screencasts, Class Descriptions). On the VLC, the videos are linked directly
to the e-learning units, however, they can also be used freely on YouTube via:

Since all videos are recorded in English, they enjoy great international
popularity. Currently, there are more than 130 videos about a variety of
linguistic topics, more videos will be produced in the coming months.
