This project requires that you have (or borrow) a device for recording video, such as a webcam, phone, or tablet. Videos will be first uploaded to YouTube so that you can self-caption them. After you have captioned your video you will share your YouTube URL in the myCourses Discussion area. This process takes time, so do not procrastinate until the last minute when uploading and captioning your videos.

STEP ONE: Record/upload your video to YouTube

If you are not familiar on how to upload videos to YouTube, detailed instructions can be found here.


STEP TWO: Self-caption your YouTube video

1) Transcribe/caption your video. This can be accomplished in one of four ways: typing in captions, uploading a script and synching timing, editing auto-generated captions, or uploading a caption file. YouTube offers detailed instructions on how to create captions for your media.

2) Watch your YouTube video with the captions on to verify they are correct. If they don't appear or the auto-generated captions appear with errors, go back and make certain that you published your revised English captions.


STEP THREE: Copy the URL of your YouTube video

1) In order to share your video you next need to copy the URL. To do this, click the Share link under the video, then copy the URL.
