  • Add music to your video from the YouTube library of royalty-free sounds and music.
  • Use Playlists to group similar videos.
  • Create a photo slideshow and set it to music.
  • Upload and watch 360-degree videos -- both live and pre-recorded.
  • Upload PowerPoint presentations and slides from your events for those unable to attend.

  1. Ok now my head is spinning. Back to step one.

    I really like how the committee is introducing and encouraging the use of these social media venues. Taking it step by step makes it less scary. Thank you for the time you are investing in the presentation of these blogs.

    1. Thank you, Yettee! We Hope to create a PDF resource with all this info provided in one document--eventually! But for now the goal is as you suggest: to introduce and encourage the use of social media!
