  1. Name - Give a name for your video. This is a required field.
  2. Description - Provide a brief or long description for your video. (The more descriptive, the easier it will be for others to know what your video is about.)
  3. Tags - Tag your video! Use keywords to describe your video. This will be essential and make it easier for you to search through your videos. There are no limits on how many tags you can use.
  4. Usage Rights - We've integrated Creative Commons licensing so that you are able to apply a CC license to your video.

By default, thumbnails are auto-generated and applied when you upload the video. It is the first frame that is displayed when the video is not playing. You can choose to upload a different thumbnail or capture a different frame in the video if the auto-generated one is not the one you want to use.

This tab allows you to add new Chapters or Slides on the timeline.

  • Chapter - Create a chapter on the timeline provides context to a segment of the media. Chapters are top hierarchy and can include slides within them.
  • Slides - A slide is a synchronized visual element to the main media. You can upload a full deck of slides (i.e. PPT,PPTX or PDF) to your video (dual-screen experience).
