    Getting Started with Uploading of Videos
    It all begins with video footage. There are a variety of methods, so select the one that works best for you. Below is a quick summary of some of the more obvious ways to upload your various video clips.
    Uploading Footage Methods:
    1. Upload directly into YouTube on your MacBook
    (via a sharing service such as Google Drive or DropBox)
    This is probably the simplest method, but requires having your footage accessible from your Mac. If you have Google Drive or DropBox ( installed, then this is simple. In the picture below: these have both been installed.
    {YouTube - Upload Videos 3.jpg}
    {YouTube - Upload Videos.jpg}
    {YouTube - Upload Videos 2.jpg}
    1. Email each video clip (idea for sharing from the iOS Camera Roll)
    This is easy, if you have 'Verified' your account. Refer to the relevant section from Part 1 of this training. You will have a personalised email address that you can send your footage to (which I added to my 'Contacts' for convenience). i.e.
    {YouTube Settings - Mobile Uploads.jpg}
    {YouTube - Upload via Email iOS.png}
    2. YouTube Creator App (on iPhone or iPad)
    This is the easiest and coolest method. Capture the video on iOS and upload directly.
    3. iMovie Share (Mac) and (iOS)
    This is more suited to an already edited video, but you might consider this method for completing a partially edited movie.
    {iMovie - Share to YouTube.jpg}
    4. Quicktime
    A video can easily be shared directly to YouTube using Quicktime. Open the video and select the 'Share' icon in the bottom-right corner of the player.
    {YouTube - Quicktime Upload.jpg}
    B/ Project: 'Capture' a video and export to YouTube
    In this training session, you will create a 15second video using the iPad App 'YouTube Capture' (see Upload Method 2 above). You will create a video like this one:
    1. Transcript
    Open a 'Pages' document and write a short introductory statement about yourself. This may include:
    your name
    subjects and grades you teach
    how and why you use YouTube
    2. Save Transcript as a .txt file
    File > Export your file as a Plain Text (.txt file): i.e.
    {Pages - Export txt files.jpg}
    3. Using your iPad (YouTube Capture), and accompanied by your Script, record a 'selfie' video.Don't forget tosign into the App using the account you want your finished clip to be aligned with. i.e.
    {IMG_6117.png} Welcome to Capture! {IMG_3193.PNG} Signed in!
    {IMG_0966.png} Record...! {IMG_0918.png} After capturing, you can do some edits

    {YouTube Week 2 Promo.jpg}
    Why use Video Creation Tools in YouTube?
    Students with smartphones can easily shoot, edit and access free resources to create their videos.
    The Case for using YouTube Video Creation Tools:
    If YouTube is the destination for the video anyway, then why not edit it there too? The case is less compelling for students (and teachers) using iPads, but if on the MacBook, then it's well worth considering.
    The Project in this Professional Development:
    1. You will write a short script that:
    a) introduces yourself
    b) states what you teach and grades taught
    c) how you use YouTube in the classroom
    2. You will pair up and record your script using 'YouTube Capture' (iOS)
    3. Edit your video using 'Video Creation' tools in YouTube on your Mac, including:
    a) transitions
    b) (additional) audio
    c) titles
    1. Script your Video (OPTIONAL for inclusion later of CAPTIONS)
    Your script can be uploaded later (see Project Extension) for optional 'Captions' in your video. To use your script though, it must be saved in Plain Text format, which of course you can do in Pages.
    Open 'Pages' ad type your short script.
    File > Save > <myscript>.txt i.e.
    {Pages - Export txt files.jpg}
    2. Shoot your video (using YouTube Capture)
    Download a copy if using your own device:
    {App Store button.jpeg} Click here to visit iTunes
    or enter the following into your web browser on you iOS device -
    {IMG_6117.png} Step 1: Sign into your Google/YouTube account
    {photo.PNG} Step 2: Record and upload
    You might use a few takes (to make it interesting), or just grab 1 take. But either way, you're ready to start editing your finished video.
    3. Edit using YouTube 'Video Creation' tools
    What editing tools are offered in the YouTube Video Creation Tools?
    YouTube Creation Tools includes a large library of additional media available in YouTube that is not available in iMovie, including:
    Videos (courtesy of Creative Commons)
    Music Library (select instruct, genre etc....but also DURATION!)
    Editing with Video Creation Tools
    Introducing the Video Editor! With the Video Editor, you can:
    Combine multiple videos and images you've uploaded to create a new video
    Trim your clips to custom lengths
    Add music to your video from a library of approved tracks
    Customise clips with special tools and effects
    Using these tools, you can put together clips to create new videos and publish them to YouTube with one click.
    Here's how to access the Video Editor:
    Sign in to your YouTube account
    Click the Upload button at the top of the page
    Click Edit on the right of the upload page, under "Video Editor"
    {Creation Tools - Video Manager.jpg}
    All of your uploads are added automatically to the Video Editor and can be used as a clip. Up to 50 clips and 500 images can be added to a project to create a new video.
    Here's how to add a video clip or image.
    Find the clip or image you want to add in the upper left of the Editor. Click the camera icon to browse images
    Move your mouse over the clip/image you want to add, then click the + button
    Or, drag the clip/image to the bottom of the timeline at the bottom of the editor, where it says Drag videos here to begin editing when you start a new project
    {YouTube Creation Uploading Options.png} Options for Creating a YouTube video
    There are a variety of other methods too for uploading from your iOS devices (as well as Mac). Click here for some of those, or navigate in the left side panel of this website to 'YouTube: Upload' to see this page.
    Once your clip is in the timeline, you can customise its length.
    Trim: Cut the length of your clip by moving your cursor over the edges of your video in the timeline. Drag the handles toward the centre of the video to shorten.
    Lengthen: Drag the handles outward from the centre of the video to lengthen. Lengthening past the original length of the video will result in the video repeating.
    Cut/Snip: Clips can be cut into portions. Move your mouse over the video and click the scissors icon to bring up the snip marker. Move this to where you want to snip the clip, then click on the scissors button to snip the clip.
    Here's the main Video Editor Window and it's features:
    {YouTube - Video Editor Main.jpg}
    {YouTube - Video Editor Medias.jpg} Media to add to your Project
    Focus: Media you can add to your Project
    You can add more of course to your Project than just your own video clips, or those sourced from Creative Commons. You can also add (refer to above key):
    Once you've got some clips assembling in your Timeline, you can perform the following tweaks and enhancements:
    Rotate: Rotates your video 90 degrees
    Effects: Apply Video Enhancements to your video to colour correct, stabilise, and add filters
    Text: Apply a text overlay on the clip
    Slow Motion: Modify the speed at which the clip plays
    {YouTube - Video Editor.jpg} Select the 'scissors' to open the video editor (enhancements)
    {YouTube - Video Editor Quick Fixes.jpg} Clip Editor: Quick Fixes
    {YouTube - Video Editor Filters.jpg.jpg} Clip Editor: Filters
    {YouTube - Video Editor Text.jpg} Clip Editor: Text
    {YouTube - Video Editor Audio.jpg} Clip Editor: Audio
    Video Annotations are a new way for you to add interactive commentary to your videos! Use it to:
    Add background information about the video
    Create stories with multiple possibilities (viewers click to choose the next scene)
    Link to related YouTube videos, channels or search results from within a video
    All of the above!
    You control what the annotations say, where they appear on the video and when they appear and disappear.
    Project Extension: Adding Captions (subtitles)
    It can be a huge advantage to have captions included in your video. Having written a script, this additional option is a step away.
    Move your mouse over a clip to bring up any of these options.
    Add Captions:
    Visit your Video Manager and click the drop-down menu next to the “Edit” button for the video you’d like to add captions to.
    Select Captions.
    If you haven’t added captions before, click the Add captions button. Or, if you’ve already added a caption, click the 'Add a new track' button.
    After following the steps above, select Upload a file.
    Set your track language. If you'd like you can also add a track name.
    Click Upload.
    Select your caption or transcript file and click open.
    After following the steps above, select Transcribe and sync.
    Set your track language. If you'd like you can also add a track name.
    Type or copy and paste your transcript into the text box.
    Once you're finished, click Sync.

    Part 1: Account Setting
    a) Overview
    Sign into your Youtube Tube account (If you are signed into Chrome, this will happen automatically)
    Select your name (as below) and a Menu will open up.
    Select YouTube Settings
    {access My Channel.jpg}
    Want to quickly and easily upload videos straight from your Cell phone? Email your videos…to yourself! YouTube has allocated you a personal email account just for this sole purpose. Add it to your Contacts on your Mac and Synch your Mobile Devices. (If you can’t do this (because it’s not available, we’ll return to it once you have ‘Verified’ your account)
    {Overview - Mobile Uploads.jpg}
    b) Connected Accounts
    Under Account Settings, you can go down the menu to ‘Connected Accounts. You might consider hooking up your other Social Media Accounts….
    {Connected Accounts.jpg}
    Part 2: Profile and About (your Channel)
    a) Artwork
    If you haven’t yet created your Profile Art, then this is how to do it.
    Click once again on your name at the top right of screen, and select My Channel.
    {access My Channel.jpg}
    You’ll see a blank canvas here asking you to add you art. Select an image that does not exceed 2560x1440px in dimension, and 2MB in file size. Here’s a sample after art is added.
    {Video Channel - My Artwork.jpg} There are 2 pictures though. The small inset picture is the profile picture. This comes from Google+ if you have activated it. If not, you will be able to again select the pencil icon and upload directly.
    b) About (Describe your Channel)
    A well organised and labelled channel will make you more easily found and identifiable on the internet. Click ‘About’ and create a description.
    If you have a blog or website, you could also consider linking this in too to cross promote.
    {My Channel - About.jpg}
    Good examples of Channel:
    Good example of a plylist:
    Part 3: Video Manager: Playlists
    While your YouTube Channel can be thought of like a TV Channel, like any channel, there are a range of categories for viewing. These categories are listed, in YouTube, into Playlists. There are 2 ways to create a Playlist. If you have a Playlist idea that readily comes to mind, you can create it directly in the Video Manager.
    {Video Manager - Playlists.jpg}
    The other way is creating them ‘on the fly’. Let’s say you are interested in The Beatles, and with the plethora of YouTube videos dedicated to them, you want to create your own listing. Here’s how to create your new Playlist when you’ve found your first entry.
    {YouTube - Add to Playlist.jpg}
    Part 4: Channel Settings
    a) Verify your Account
    There are advantages to having a ‘Verified’ account. One of the more obvious is ability to post videos that exceed 15mins. Go to Channel Settings > Features and Verify now. If you are in ‘Good Standing’ you will instantly be verified.
    {Account in Good Standing.jpg} {Account in Good Standing pt2.jpg.jpg}
    {Account in Good Standing pt3.jpg.jpg}
    Another advantage of being ‘Verified’ is you can add you own ‘Watermark’ image to any new video that you post (i.e. a video you have created and own).
    b) Add a Watermark to your own Content
    {In Video Programming - Add Watermark.jpg.jpg}
    {In Video Programming - Watermark 3.jpg}
    {In Video Programming - Uploaded Watermark.jpg.jpg}
    {In Video Programming - Watermark 4.jpg}
    c) Channel Settings
    Now it’s time to really dig into the detail of your Channel. Start with the Defaults, as below:
    {Channel Settings - Defaults.jpg}
    …and from the left Manu, select ‘Advanced’ to make some additional settings choices. Included (in blue) is how to change the name of your actual Channel. It defaults to your name. You may wish to change this, which you can do by selecting 'change' next to your existing Channel name.
