University contributing to growth
of online video content
A recent study by digital marketing company comScore reported that in the United States, more than 88.6 million people watched online videos on an average day in December 2010.
A report last week indicated that YouTube is the most popular website among smartphone users worldwide, accounting for 17 percent of all mobile data traffic.
Universities and colleges around the world — including Texas State — are part of the video tidal wave. There are a number of YouTube channels with video about the university, ranging from the official channel to the Career Services Office to the Athletic Department. Here are some of the Texas State-related YouTube sites:
- The main Texas State channel

- Campus Recreation

- Bobcat Update
