For education and training videos
UCARConnect is the NCAR/UCAR gateway to education and training, from K12 through postgraduates and professionals.
In response to requests from our university members and from across the organization to provide a single source for all NCAR/UCAR education and training videos (rather than continue to see multiple channels proliferate), the NCAR/UCAR Web Advisory Group, F&A IT, Communications, and UCP co-sponsored creation of this central repository for all education and training videos produced by NCAR and UCAR.
For videos about scientific breakthroughs
AtmosNews: NCAR & UCAR Science: www.youtube.com/ncarucar
Contact Zhenya Gallon in Communications to discuss potential inclusion of your video on the NCAR/UCAR news channel.
All submissions should be reviewed for....
- scientific/technical accuracy
- compliance with copyright laws and release forms (see Legal Considerations for Multimedia on Websites and Social Media)
- NSF disclaimer (see Legal Considerations for Multimedia on Websites and Social Media)
Should I create a new YouTube channel for my group?
One of the two options above will probably meet most video publication needs. Invest in outlining a consistent style for titles, tagging, and embedding your videos within your website after you contribute them to UCARConnect or AtmosNews. Metrics from YouTube reveal that most people find videos via a Google keyword search or by viewing embedded videos within a website they are visiting. This is why well-written titles that begin with powerful keywords, and great web material with which to surround your embedded video are so important
If your NCAR Lab or UCP Program produces video on a regular/frequent basis, or already hosts a YouTube channel, please see:
