Role in the classroom: I can see YouTube Cards being used to have students create video portfolios or a video resume. Throughout a course or entire year, students can create video content and upload to their YouTube channel. At the end of the course, students can then create a recap video that briefly mentions each of the ideas that they explained and captured throughout the year. The videos that were created throughout the year would then be added as Cards to the recap video.
Teachers can also take advantage of Cards by creating an overview video of a concept and adding Cards to existing video content on YouTube that would help their students explore, understand or review a concept.
1. Access the YouTube Creator Studio and choose Cards when editing an existing video.
2. Add either Video or Associated Website Cards.
NOTE: If adding a link to an associated website, the website must be added to the Advanced details of one's YouTube channel first. Once the website is added, any link from the associated website or
blog can be added as a card to a video.
3. Select the timing for each card to appear in the master video.
4. View the final product and multiple student videos will now be clickable at designated spots throughout the video.
