Setting up YouTube
We will be using video recordings throughout this course to submit assignments and evaluate peers. The easiest way to share videos, by far, is through YouTube. It is a free Google product that lets you upload and store videos. If you already have a Google account, then it is easy. If you don’t, then watch the following videos to learn how to create an account and upload videos.

How to upload a video
Using YouTube as a medium for video submissions keeps video formatting consistent and therefore, easily accessible for review (whether to grade a speech or have a peer prepare a rebuttal). It also lets students maintain control of their video content. For those unfamiliar with uploading YouTube videos, making a video “unlisted” means that the video is unsearchable and can only be viewed by sharing a link to your video.
