  Mini-Documentary Publishing  Distributing your completed mini-documentary is a great way to let others see your work and hear the story you have told.  To make your story available, upload your video to YouTube.  It is best to use a google account other than your school one so that you will have control over the content after you graduate.  

If you do decide to make your mini-documentary public, please send an email message to the teacher with the link to the video.  That way your video will be included on the LoganTV.net website and it may be highlighted on Logan Live!

Here are the steps to share your mini-documentary with the public:
If you do not have a personal Google Account, follow these steps to Create a Google Account
If you do not have a personal YouTube account, follow these steps to Create an account on YouTube
Here is how to Upload videos to YouTube.
Once your mini-documentary is public on YouTube, please send an email message to the teacher with the link to the video.
