YouTube Studio Settings for Teachers
Many years ago I was at the annual ISTE conference when I heard a speaker say, “if you want the biggest authentic audience for your students’ work, put it on YouTube.” I think he had a good point because it is possible for your students’ work be seen by millions of people if it’s really good and it fits the algorithm-of-the-day at YouTube. The reality is that using YouTube is just a convenient way for you to share your videos with the your students and for them to share with you.
There are a few YouTube settings you need to know how to use before you use YouTube to publish school-related videos. Those settings are explained and demonstrated in this updated video that I recently recorded.
In the video you’ll learn:
- How to upload to YouTube.
- Privacy settings for your uploads.
- How to control comments.
- How to blur faces and objects in your uploaded videos.
(Although I think I remember who made that statement at ISTE, I don’t want to misattribute it).
