Video for ASL

Creating and uploading videos for ASL (and other languages) assignments is often done with iMovie and shared via YouTube. Here are instructions and support to get you going! ASL Students usually use WLC-South, Room 107 Lab for this work. Check lab reservations here.

  • Shoot, edit and create your video using iMovie. The arrow pointing down opens the camera.
  • Export the video to the desktop. Arrow pointing up is for 'Share'.
  • Then, using CSUMB email account (Google Apps for Education), log into YouTube. The link is under the 'More' link at the top of the campus mail window.
  • Once on YouTube, there is a button for 'Upload' just to the right of the search box.
  • Drop the file into the upload window and upload that movie.
  • There will be a link to share the video. Copy that link.
  • Log into iLearn. Paste the 'share' URL into the assignment box and 'link' the URL.

WLC's lab runs the version of iMovie with a purple and silver icon. The old version sports a Gold and Black application icon. Tips and instructions for the new version are shared as a GoogleDoc.
