Create Choose Your Own Adventure Videos

Earlier this week I was one of the instructors at the Ed Tech Teacher Teaching History With Technology workshop. Through one of the other instructors, Greg Kulowiec, I learned how to make videos that you upload to YouTube interactive. By using the spotlight annotation tool in the YouTube video editor you can insert into your videos a hyperlink to other videos or websites. By inserting multiple links into your videos you can create "choose your own adventure" series of videos. Click here to see one of the videos that Greg's students created using the spotlight annotation tool.

Here are the basic directions for getting started linking together a series of YouTube videos that you and your students have created. These directions assume you already know how to upload videos to YouTube, watch this video if you don't know how to upload videos to YouTube.
