N.C. State is making news and information about the university available on YouTube.

The channel will include videos about happens on campus as well as lesson plans, according to Tim Jones, who is director of Web communications for NCSU.

"We have great stories to tell here at NC State, and YouTube gives us another place to share those stories with a wide variety of audiences," Jones said in a statement announcing the YouTube launch.

NCSU isn’t alone in adding YouTube. Duke University recently launched its own YouTube effort.
