Where you post a video depends on what you want to do with it. Wherever you post it, however, the same three steps will be common to all sites: choose the site, upload the video, share a link.
|What you should know…||How to Post||How to Share|
|YouTube||St. Mark’s is a “Google Apps for Education” school — everyone has a Google account, which also includes a YouTube account. YouTube (as you probably know) is one of the major streaming media sites on the internet.It. Just. Works.||You can post directly from iMovie (or a number of other video editors), or export a video file to upload through the web.We recommend that you post your video “unlisted”, so that you have some control over who does and does not see it.||Get the YouTube sharing link — you can paste this into a Canvas assignment or an email (or use it to embed the video in a discussion or wiki or blog post).|
|Google Drive||Our Google accounts also give us Google Drive, a place to share all kinds of files. If you want to have more nuanced permissions for who can or can’t see your video, this is a great place to put it.||You can drag a video file directly into Google Drive in your web browser, or put the file in your Google Drive folder using Google Desktop Sync (or you can click to upload a new file).||Either use the Google Drive sharing menu to invite others to see your video, or get the sharing link — you can paste this into a Canvas assignment or an email.|
|Canvas||You may want to post a “media assignment” or include it in the Rich Content Editor on Canvas and you can either record it using your webcam or upload a video file. This takes some setup ahead of time by the teacher.||You can record the video with your webcam, or upload a video file through the media recording interface.||The video will automatically be available to whoever “should” see it (the teacher, your classmates, etc.) depending on the teacher’s settings.|
