The MIT Video website — developed and maintained by the MIT News Office — aggregates and curates video produced by the Institute's offices, laboratories, centers and administration. This includes feature and editorial videos, event recordings, academic content and more. Each day, the editorial team at MIT Video selects one or more videos to "spotlight" based on the videos' content, production value and timeliness. We hope you enjoy MIT Video and welcome your feedback as we continue to develop the site.
Looking to just browse? We have hundreds of channels — from OpenCourseWare's academic content, to features from MIT News
to how-to videos and more. Check it out.
