Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Week 1:
Understanding what it takes to become a YouTuber, let’s talk about our favourite YouTubers and the skills that they have had to practice to make them successful.

Week 2:
Lighting, filming and talking on camera. How to light your YouTube videos to perfection with minimal gear, angles, and what to film when filming a vlog.

Week 3:
Finding your niche. What are you good at, what do you love talking about? Anyone can be a vlogger, but what will set you apart is what makes you unique. Let’s talk about what sets us apart.

Week 4: 
Scripting our first Youtube video, planning the shots we want to get. Learning about the beginning, middle and end to making a YouTube video.

Week 5:
Editing our YouTube videos together - learning the basics of iMovie.

Week 6: 
Making a Thumbnail for our YouTube video. Learning about keyword research and how to title our video to make people want to see it .

Week 7: 
Presenting our YouTube videos and planning our next YouTube video. Short Q&A session to follow.
After Week 4's class, students will be assigned a short project to film a YouTube video. As we are aiming to shoot something simple, this should take no longer than 1.5 hours of their time before the next class. 
A camera - can be a simple cellphone camera or a handheld digital camera
Editing software - iMovie or Adobe Rush
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Canva
  • iMovie OR Adobe Rush
At the end of the seven weeks, the learner will receive a short written report on how they can improve their storytelling skills and will receive positive feedback on their YouTube video. 
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please note that we will not be posting these videos to YouTube as we will just be filming and editing mock YouTube videos. If your child wants to post their video onto the internet, that choice will be made by you and your family and will not have to do with the course content.
