How to upload Simple Teaching Videos to Youtube in 5 minutes

Updated on June 11, 2017

No matter what profession we belong to, it's normal to think of ways to improve a service. I am now interested in how to upload videos on youtube for learning and for starters, I have found a very simple way.

You can either record yourself and upload,

if like me, you are Camera shy, just upload a photo, backed with an Audio.

1) Record the audio on Voice Recorder and convert it into MP3 using this website. It takes under one minute.

  • Click on Open file, select where your file is.
  • Click on Convert.
  • When it has finished converting it, download it to your computer.

2) Have your photo ready, which can either be in jpg or png form.

Online Audio Converter Website


Next, visit:

Follow the simple instructions below.The Service is free, but you can make a donation if you want.

An example of one of the Teaching Videos I have created, using this is below.
Remember, you have the option of monetizing your videos - a process where Google pays you.

It doesn't have to be limited to educational videos. You could upload a motivational quote or photo of yours and just upload a 5 minute inspiring talk with it.

So, this is just the basics. There are more interesting ways to create videos, with other websites to make it more sophisticated but if you are testing the waters like novice me, this is a nice way to start out.

Tovid Website


Once you click the Connect to YouTube button, it will spend a few minutes processing and will notify you when your video has been uploaded to your youtube channel. (Make sure you are logged in before you start the process). It will prompt you for a title of your video, category, tags, etc.

Click on Community to allow comments or to approve comments before they are posted.

You also have options, whether to make your video public or private. On completion, it is worth sharing the links on:

a) Social media. (Facebook / Twitter / LinkedIn etc)

b) With friends.

c) With your students. (give them the link, after watching it in class).

d) On any blogs/websites you have.

Feel free to ask me any questions. Also, if you know of any other useful, similar sites, please share below.

Good Luck.

      Hi Lady_E/Elena,

      This is good timing for me As well. I just recently decided to create a video series on YouTube and a series of instructional books. I love using tools like Camtasia and Snagit. And for audio I like using audacity. Thanks sharing your links and info.

      You and I have been on Hubpages for quite awhile, for me it's been 7 years. I have not been as active on HubPages lately but I definitely. want to post some articles soon.

      You must be a mind reader, I have been thinking about making videos for Youtube. I think there are many avenues, for instructional videos.

      The programs which I use frequently I could help other people understand how to use them.

      Now I have to put my thinking cap on, thanks for those links.
