upload video manager

Check the checkbox next to the video you uploaded.
Using the Actions drop down menu, set the video as Creative Commons.
Creative Commons2

Share the link

Share the link to the YouTube video with the students.  Since the video was labeled as Creative Commons the students should be able to find a button BELOW the video that says “Remix this video.”
Remix this Video 2

This will make a COPY of the video to the students YouTube account. This launches the YouTube video editor.

Students edit the video

Ask students to create their own highlight video. The YouTube video editor allows students to edit the video, or even to mash multiple Creative Commons videos together.

Having students think critically about the essential parts of the video is a great way for students to have a deeper understanding of what is happening in the video.
