After you create a free teacher “channel” on YouTube, in addition to publishing/sharing videos there you can also EDIT them in basic ways. This support article from Google explains how to add, trim, customize, add audio and publish edited videos using the YouTube website editor. This is a fast way to make basic edits to videos you record with a Flip or other flash-based video camcorder.

Video editing options available in YouTube

Free software programs are also available for video editing, but the steps to use these programs can be much more time consuming than simply editing a video directly on YouTube. Free video editing programs include:

  1. iMovie (for Apple users, included as part of iLife software)
  2. Windows MovieMaker Live (for Windows 7 users)
  3. Windows MovieMaker (for WinXP users)
  4. Windows MovieMaker (for Windows Vista users)

If you have an iPad, the iMovie app for iPad is available for $5, educational volume purchasing discounts may apply depending on your location/context. More details about using the app are available on Wesley Fryer’s “iPad Quick Edit Videography” page.
