How to name video titles for YouTube
Videos will be titled in the following way:
Course name – Unit – Lesson: Title
History 20 – Unit 2 – Lesson 7: The Rise of Hitler in Germany
No generic titles such as “Lesson 1” or “Example 2.” The reasoning behind this is that we need the videos to be searchable in case of a Lotto 649 winning, the teacher leaves, and the school needs access to the videos.
It will also help students as they will be able to see what video they are watching.
Embed a video when you want a student to watch one video. A playlist should be used when you want to easily change out videos without updating the embed code. For example, you can make a playlist of your teacher introduction and then the course introduction. Then if the teacher introduction needs to change, you can update the playlist without having to change the embed code In your online course.
