How to put up a post that is focused on a video.
The great value of this is for teaching: either recording you talking to the camera; or recording your screen showing how to perform a task online.
Note that the video will be hosted on YouTube, partly due to a limitation of free WordPress accounts.
Extension activity: You can try this process on Blogger, using a different, perhaps simpler, series of steps. Because Google owns both YouTube and Blogger, they make it easy to start off in YouTube watching a video, and to then, still on that page, simply click on a few buttons to get the video into your Blogger account (assuming you are signed in to YouTube or Blogger). The steps are to click on:
- ‘Share’ (it’s underneath the video).
- The Blogger logo, which looks like a white letter ‘B’ in an orange square. If it’s not visible, can you see the Twitter logo? Click ‘show more’ next to the Twitter logo
- ‘Publish’. Before you do that, you can add text, if desired, to go with the video.
