The Open Universities Australia YouTube channel has officially been launched, and to celebrate, OUA is running a competition for 3 months in which students can win a Macbook by uploading a video about their study experiences.

The YouTube channel focuses on the 'Class of 2011', with a series of videos about OUA students and their study stories. Current and interested students can hear from people who are finding success and fulfilment through their studies with OUA. As well as providing a useful source of student experiences, the YouTube channel aims to further establish OUA as leaders in the higher education digital space.

To celebrate the launch of the new channel, OUA is giving students the opportunity to create their own video about their study experiences. The most unique and creative entries will be shortlisted and uploaded to the OUA YouTube channel, where students and members of the general public will be able to vote for their favourite.

The video with the highest number of votes will win a Macbook, and the three runners-up will each receive an iPad 2.

The competition is open to all students with a current OUA Student ID. For more information about entering, please visit the OUA YouTube channel page. The closing date for entries is 27 September, while voting on the shortlisted entries will conclude on 27 October.
