YouTube videos can be used for many school projects.
Making them yourselfEdit
It is simple to make videos to upload to YouTube. Windows Movie Maker which is on most Windows computers is a good choice. Information on how to use the software is available on Windows Movie Maker. Another software choice is VideoSpin. 30 second videos can be made without downloading software at Animoto. Once you upload your video to YouTube, the website has its own simple video editor that can be used online.
YouTube videos can be downloaded and then cut into clips using Free Video Dub. Then just open the clips in either Windows Movie Maker or VideoSpin and combine them. It is also possible to add music to the resulting video by inserting an MP3 file.
You can also use a YouTube video relating to what you are talking about during a presentation.
