    Respected Sir , First we upload video on youtube after copy the url and paste in ISC link or Make a Video and save in computer and browse in ISC link

  • #600247
    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.

  • #600259
    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.

  • #600267
    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.

    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.

  • #601440
    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.

    Can I upload the video which I was created for this contest or only I will upload the videos of institutions only.
    Reguards -

  • #602080
    Today was the last date of submission of videos. However, no video has been submitted/uploaded so far. There is no doubt that the deadline will be extended. I request other Members to submit educational video(s). A Member can submit more than one video.

    Members can avail this opportunity to get popular by uploading educational videos and win attractive prizes. Please don't miss the opportunity. Personally I can't participate in this contest because of various reasons.

    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

  • #602429
    What is the last date of submitting the video to the India study channel?
    Reguards -

  • #602485
    Sorry but I'm unable to clearly understand your query (#602067).
    The videos you are submitting should not be published anywhere previously, and should be about educational institutions.
    Regarding last date, we have extended it and will be announced soon. Due to no entries till now, we are on an internal discussion. Soon awards will be announced and the last date of submission too.

    This is not an easy contest to participate. One has to have all the talents. It is like producing a short film. We need a subject, good script, a good camera , ability to direct, act, shoot and what not and all. Above all, it requires time and patience. Hence the contest is weak without any entry. All ISCians need to turn short film makers.

    I would like the contest announcer Mr. Sultan Mustafijul Hoque to lead and participate in this contest, and submit a sample educational video film, for others to follow.

    I am sorry to say that unlike other contests of ISC, this particular contest is unfortunately unsuccessful. It is unfortunate but could be anticipated. Making an educational cideo is not very easy.

    What is the last date for submitting self made video on ISC Channel for ISC Youtube Contest. Is this contest still live or the winner will be announced shortly.
    Don't stand in someone else's shadow when it's your sunlight that should lead the way

  • #603170
    Has the contest announcer read this response to post his counter response? Is it possible for the contest author to shoot an educational video film and show to the ISCian or not? If No, such a contest should not have been announced.

    Hi Kapadia J,

    The last date of submission of videos on ISC Youtube channel will be updated shortly. This contest is still running and you can submit self made videos on educational institutions. Do you have any further queries, don't hesitate to ask here.

  • #603419
    Can we get points if we submit video?

  • #603444
    Yes you will get points and cash credit for each video you post provided it meets the rules and regulations of ISC which is mentioned in the contest thread itself.

  • #603447
    Everyone please note that we will be giving bumper cash prizes, with the top prize of Rs.500/- or even more. We are waiting for the Webmaster's intimation on the amounts for the various prizes. You can simply take a video of an institute's campus facilities or create some education-related content, such as, say, of a hardware engineering course, the actual lab/workshop equipment generally used to give hands-on training, etc.

    There was a suggestion to upload a video as a sample and one of the team may work on it, but due to time constraints this may take time.

    When people come at you with their worst, you should come at them with your best (advice given to Selena Gomez by her mother, quoted in Time magazine.)

  • #603582
    I'm only accountable to the ISC authorities for whatever I do here. I request you to refrain yourself from turning even an official contest announcement thread to controversy. Again I'm repeating, I'm not accountable to you for what I do/don't do here. Hope you well understand this.
