The concern about sharing students’ videos on YouTube that I hear most frequently is about privacy. Many teachers and school administrators don’t want to put videos online that have students’ faces in them. Yesterday, YouTube launched a new editing feature to address that issue.
There is now a face blurring tool in the YouTube video editor. These are the steps for using the new face blurring tool: 1. upload your video to YouTube. 2. open the “enhancements” option for your video. 3. select “blur all faces” in the “quick fixes tab.” See the slides below for screenshots of the process.
