Videos are private to you until you publish them.

Step 4: Select the video you would like to upload from your computer. You can also import a video from Google Photos.

Step 5: Complete requested information and click "Next" to move through the screens.

Much of the information requested on the next few screens is optional. If you miss a required element you'll be prompted to complete it before moving on. 

Step 6: Click "Save" to finish uploading a public video to YouTube.

If you've set the video to private you can still share with your instructor or others. Click on the word "Private" next to your video on the Channel content page to invite viewers by email.

Your video is now available to view. Learn more about privacy settings.
