Creating a YouTube video presents a fun, challenging assignment for students taking an online class. Having students make a YouTube video promotes critical and analytical skills as they design story boards, write scripts, film footage, edit content, and upload videos, sharing them with the class and a global audience. This creative project also promotes cultural diversity since students can present processes involving cooking, building crafts, and analytical reviews from their own social backgrounds and individual experiences. This presentation reveals how to implement this project in the virtual classroom in four steps: The initial summary of the video, creating the story boards, writing the voice-over script, and uploading the content to Canvas and YouTube. These four points represent the basics; instructors can change the assignment in any way their course demands. In addition, the discussion will cover the different types of freeware software students can download to design their videos, fair use laws to avoid copyright infringements, grading tips, and advice on fielding technical difficulties.
