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).

How to Edit Your Videos in YouTube Studio

A couple of days ago a reader emailed me to ask for help cropping a video. Specifically, he wanted to know what I thought would be the simplest online tool for cropping the recording of a livestream. My suggestion was to use the editing tools that are built right into YouTube Studio (the place where you upload videos in your YouTube account). 

Answering that reader's question prompted me to record this video overview of the basics of using the editing tools that are built into YouTube Studio. Watch the video to learn how to:

  • Upload videos to YouTube
  • Use hashtags in your video's description. 
  • Crop videos in YouTube studio. 
  • Blur faces and objects in your videos. 
  • Use YouTube's library of music in your videos.
