    Hi Seema Mittal, first we have to make video then we have upload it in the ISC video uploader link given. Then your video will be uploaded to the YouTube channel by the admin. You need not to upload video to the YouTube personally.

    Like Seema, I too got doubt as the editor has mentioned in point no 10, after uploading video, we should leave a response here but it said, ISC will upload the video. More clarification is needed.

    Another doubt, adult subject oriented means what, and what kind of educational video's audience?

    Nice to be in ISC and feel the difference.

    Saroja, We will have to upload the video to ISC through given link and inturn ISC will upload it to Youtube channel. We have to leave comment here after uploading to ISC and not to Youtube.

    One example of audult subject oriented educational may be sex education.

    Clarification on Rule No 6: Videos should be suitable for all age viewers. Topics which are not suitable for below 18, are not accepted. I doubt there are any scopes in this contest subject, that will violate this rule. But still, to eliminate all the possibilities this rule no 6 has been added.

    I am a teacher. Can I upload a video to teach student any topic by using board and marker pen?
    Honesty is the best policy.

    It is really a wonderful contest . I am using video editing software to make YouTube videos like Filmore , VideoScribe etc. Can I upload educational videos which are created using software?
    Can I use my Youtube channel name in these videos?

    Success occurs when opportunity and preparation meet.

    Hi Hakimuddin And Phagu,
    As of now, we are mainly looking for educational institution related videos.
    Videos recorded by any camera is allowed as of now and, as the Rule no 7 states, you cannot use your channel name in videos.

    John, as mentioned, we are focusing on videos created on educational institutions.

    Sukanya, description text should have keywords for the topic, i.e. institution name, area name, state name, department names, etc. topic/subject related keywords.
