Videos are a great way to connect with the Next Generation Extension. After the Fuel Up to Play 60 Healthy Tailgate, I was trying to figure out what to do with all of the photos. I decided to create an iMovie and upload it to YouTube. Even though I used iMovie on my laptop, you can purchase the program through the app store, which is designed for both iPhone and iPad. For my video, I used an iMovie template, added some text, and found a fun, upbeat song to add. I received feedback on how to improve my video to use it as a digital impact report and made the appropriate changes. When creating a digital impact report, make sure to include the following:
- Identify the University of Nebraska – Lincoln Extension and include your title
- Describe program
- Main goals of the program
- List the number of participants
- List impact of the program
I wanted to add a popular song to my Healthy Tailgate Video that would reach the youth. A lot of people ask me how I can use a copyrighted song during my video. Copyrighted songs are allowed on YouTube, but ads will be played on the video. Under the description of the video, I add the artist and title of the song. Then, YouTube will add a link about the song and artist, which is located next to the video description. The song link doesn’t show up right away, but it will at some point. Since other YouTube videos have ads playing, I thought the viewer would know how to click the “x” button on the right hand corner of the ad box to stop displaying the ads at the start of the video.
Let me know if you have any more questions about creating a digital impact report.
