WhatsApp Group Creation

Want to Vlog? First things FIRST 1) Sign Into Your Google Account.

Before you can start creating a YouTube account, you must sign in to your Google account. (YouTube is owned by Google.) If you do not have an account, that’s okay! You can check out our quick tutorial on How to Create a Google Account. Once you sign up and sign in then move on to step 2 below!

Vloging and Creating a YouTube Channel Step 2

2) Click on My Channel.

After signing in to your YouTube account, click on the drop down arrow next to your avatar in

the top right corner. This is the same place where the, “Sign In” button usually is. After you

click on the drop down arrow, a new set of options are made available. The first thing you want

to do here is to click on: “My Channel”.

10

Vloging and Creating YouTube Channel Step 3

3) Decide the Name.

This is one of the most important steps when it comes to creating a YouTube channel. Deciding

your channel name! You can either use your name by default or you can choose a different name of

your choice by clicking on the “To use a business or other name, click here” button. Most people

like to choose a different name instead of using their own names.

11

Vloging Continued You want the name to represent and explain what your YouTube channel is about. For example,

if you wanted to vlog about the latest fashion trends, you could pick a name like, “Fashion

Trends Today” or “Carly’s Fashion Picks”. You get the point! Choose a name that describes

your channel. After deciding on a name, fill in the required fields below and be sure to read over

the page terms before selecting, “I Agree”. Once you finish filling in the information required,

click on, “Done”.

Fill In The Required Fields

12

Take the YouTube Channel Tour Once you finish the naming process, you are taken to your channel page. You may also see an option at the top right of your page that invites you to take a tour of your new channel. It’s quick and it helps you get familiar with different options for editing your channel.

13

Edit YouTube Account Settings In order to edit your account settings, you must go back to the drop down menu by clicking on the downwards arrow and then select, “YouTube Settings”.

14

Creating a Custom YouTube URL. ▪  It’s always great to have a custom YouTube URL instead of a default one. For example, your

YouTube channel url may be “www.YouTube.com/user/blahblah8920128h0hd0dn0–9” etc. Instead, you can have a custom url for your channel that is branded. It can be “www.YouTube.com/user/YourChannelName”

▪  This can be of great help when it comes to promoting your channel and your students work. It is something that others can remember more easily.

▪  So let’s create a custom URL for your YouTube channel. After reaching the YouTube settings page, click on the, “Advanced” button.

15

after “User/” in the URL of “www.YouTube.com/user/YourURL “. Pick wisely!

After deciding on a URL, click on create channel url. You now have your own custom channel

url.

Video Blogging for Beginners

What is a blog? The word ‘blog’ is short for web log. Blogs generally have the following features: ●  They are updated regularly ●  They consist of a collection of posts ●  Each post has a date ●  The newest posts appear at the top of the page ●  A blog can be very much like an online diary. Indeed, one of the most popular

blogs on the internet is called The Diary of Samuel Pepys. On this blog, a new entry from Samuel Pepys’s Diary appears every day.
