The channel offers many niche topics that aren't warranted enough time in school such as developing skills in social relationships, emotional coping, and new technology. Many role models have a cameo in the channel like George Lucas, making it attractive to not only kids but their parents as well. Even though there are no instructors in direct contact with the kids, Edutopia provides many videos that can offer an intimate form of learning for kids."

Some videos seem to be designed to inform you about an issue, whereas others seems to be geared around shocking and titillating the video and drawing them in with "click-bait" style video and images of unfortunate people trapped in difficult lifestyles that the audience is just kind of going to gawk at.
