Yesterday during iPad Media Camp in Edmond, Oklahoma, teachers created their own YouTube channels and learned how to shoot, edit and publish videos to YouTube using an iPad. One of the important things we should do as teachers when we publish videos to YouTube is turn ON comment moderation. Yesterday I created a four minute narrated slideshow and screencast, using the iPad App “Explain Everything” demonstrating the steps required to moderate a YouTube video.

It is currently NOT possible to turn comment moderation ON as the DEFAULT setting for YouTube videos you upload. This process must be done individually for each video, it’s not possible to ‘batch process’ multiple videos either.

    Just in time! I had started recording videos for my students, but I hadn’t turned on comment moderation.  Great short video to help me do that.
