What is YouTube?
YouTube is a video sharing service where users can watch, like, share, comment and upload their own videos. The video service can be accessed on PCs, laptops, tablets, and via mobile phones. Teachers have an individual YouTube account for uploading their own videos to YouTuve, through Google Apps for Education.
