To acknowledge this accomplishment, the center released a short video, “Celebrating One Million Views.”

The center began producing video content in 2006, creating “Guiding Young Children’s Behavior” for preschool teachers in U.S. Navy child development centers (the project was funded by the U.S. Department of Defense). The center created a website in 2008 and posted our first video on-line, “Five Predictors of Early Literacy,” from the popular e-clips video series. The center’s YouTube channel went live on January 29, 2013, with 12 videos. Since then, the center has posted more than 125 videos to the channel.

CECE videos have featured more than 50 teachers, home child care providers, home visitors, program administrators, faculty, and other experts in the field. To date, 23 communication students have helped to create the videos, and 17 student research assistants have been featured in videos outlining research findings. Videos have been viewed in more than 200 countries, and have been incorporated into courses for current and future early childhood teachers across the United States and Canada. CECE videos have received six Telly Awards for technical excellence in video production.
