How to name video titles for YouTube  


Videos will be titled in the following way: 


Course name – Unit – Lesson: Title 


Example: 

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.  



 
Embedding Videos 


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.
