Denise Corso
I'm just looking for a way to post the videos I've made and the YouTube videos I've found that I like for my students. I've read through everything here and I'm still not clear on three things:

1) How do I upload videos I've made on my own?
2) How do I include videos from youtube?
3) How do I keep it so ONLY my students can see them?

I'm not opposed to sharing, but I am specifically asking different teams in my class to do specific things making my videos not really appropriate for the masses.

This is the fourth site I've tried because my district doesn't allow us to house videos on their servers so I have no way of posting them on my own website and need to link to a site that does allow me to embed the videos on the site and store them there.

Hi Denise, my name is Mattie Eslinger and I am the Digital Marketing Associate with Sophia. Hopefully I can help with these questions! In regards to question 1 & 2: When you create a Sophia tutorial, you can easily include videos you created as well as videos from YouTube. To add videos to your tutorial, click on "video" under the "insert" tab in the tutorial creation page. From there, you can upload videos you created or insert YouTube URLs. In regards to question three: You can make tutorials "private" by publishing them to a Group. Only students who have access to the Group will be able to see the tutorials - so you'll need to remember to share the group code with you class.

Hope that helps! If you have any further questions feel free to email me at
