YouTube can be a practical tool to publish instruction videos or webinars.

You could create a personal account, or an organisational account (preferred).


  • You can upload any video format; it is automatically converted to MP4 (SD/HD).
  • You can create playlists, possibly including other videos, and add keywords (tags)
  • You might upload subtitles
  • Once uploaded, the description can still be updated afterwards


  • You can preset some preferences (default license, default visibility, default categories)



YouTube only foresees a standard YouTube license, or a CC BY license.

You might include more specific license requirements.

Example: CC BY-SA
