Interacting on a YouTube Live Session

Modified on: 2018-06-18 10:17:48 +0200

This step-by-step guide will assist you in setting up a YouTube Channel. This is a requirement if you wish to interact in a YouTube live session.

You will be able to attend a Q&A live session without signing into YouTube. However, if you would like to submit a comment or question using the chat box, you will need to create a channel on YouTube before the session begins.

If you already have a YouTube channel set up then this will be an easy process. All that is required is for you to access and comment in the session is to click on the provided link. This will take you into the live session, and the comments section will be on the right-hand side of the session video. 

If you do not have a YouTube channel you will be prompted to create one when you click on the live session link. In order to do this please follow the steps below:

Step 1: Select your youtube profile at the top as indicated in the image below. 

Step 2: A drop-down menu will appear, select the option marked ''My channel''.

Step 3: Finally, this will then ask you if you would like to create your channel. Click ''create channel'' to complete the final step. 

Once you have clicked on “CREATE CHANNEL” you will need to go back to the course and click on the link to be directed to the live session. Once your channel is created, you will be able to comment on the session.
