Thanks a million to our video fans
RMIT University's videos on YouTube have been viewed one million times.
The videos have attracted a worldwide audience, including significant numbers in the US, Vietnam, the UK and India.
Content includes profiles of top academics and students, insights into RMIT research, introductions to campus life and buildings in Melbourne and Vietnam, and overviews of many of the University's programs.
Videos explaining "how things work" - from hydrogen engines to acupuncture - have been popular ... 110,000 views and counting.
Cratis Hippocrates, Executive Director Engagement at RMIT, said: "There is a growing audience for the kind of quality content only a university can offer.
"The RMIT channel contains more than 420 videos and is attracting a third of a million views a year ... and all that without resorting to those YouTube staples, cute kittens and Justin Bieber.
"Video allows us to showcase all that is best about RMIT's research, teaching and facilities to a global audience.
"It's a perfect fit for RMIT as a global university of technology and design."
Now RMIT is asking students, staff and alumni to pick their favourite video and be in the running to win prizes.
And if you're feeling creative, enter our video competition and share your work with the RMIT community.
The best effort will win two tickets to ride in the RMIT hot air balloon, with a champagne breakfast thrown in.
A taste of the varied content on offer.
