Step 2 Upload Video to Youtube and Link recording into Schoology

We recommend that the recording is loaded into YouTube and then add the link to Schoology.  YouTube gives us automatic closed captioning and smoother viewing experience for the student. 
You may load the video into a YouTube account that you already have (make sure the account is set to Unlisted) OR you may also have the IAL staff load it into our YouTube channel. 

Upload your video to Youtube

1.  Click Camera Icon in upper right hand corner  
2.  Choose Upload video
3.  Select File
4.  Locate the Zoom_0 file
5.  In the Title box, change the name of the video and click Next
6.  Click Next again
7.  Set Visibility to Unlisted and click Save
8.  Wait for video to process
9.  Once it’s processed, click the three dots next to the video and choose Get shareable link
10.  The link is now copied to the clipboard

Loading your video into Schoology
