Step 2 – Uploading Your Video

IMPORTANT: In your courses, it is often required that you publish your video as “unlisted.” An unlisted video is not visible to search engines but can be viewed by  anyone with the link to the video. Sometimes, you may have to keep your video private and only share with a handful of users who need to review it.
