  • How to set up a YouTube channel, get subscribers and likes, and eventually maybe even make some money

  • How to get more views for your videos and how to make your YouTube channel part of a Social media campaign

  • How to effectively shoot and edit (using a mobile device) good looking short segments including recording good audio

  • How to set up a simple Green Screen shoot at home

During the course you'll hear directly from a Google rep about how to make the most of YouTube and have the opportunity ask all your "not-so-dumb" questions!
