Skillbuilder teaches how to create a YouTube channel

Katarina Rothhorn, Features Editor

Harrison Bouche, a digital media tutor in the tutoring center and junior multimedia production major, started his YouTube experience creating several gaming channels in middle school and high school. He started digging into the world of video production, marketing and managing and won awards for a few of his own small video productions. 

Now in college, he wants to share his knowledge with other students who might be interested in diving into the world of YouTube and personal video production. 

“People often don’t realize how involved this process can be,” Bouche said. “I want to make sure that they don’t get overwhelmed and come out with an unenjoyable experience.”

Bouche’s skillbuilder, How to Start Your Own YouTube Channel, will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 13 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Digital Media Tutoring Center. The Digital Media Tutoring Center is located in the Lydia M. Olson Library and provides assistance to students with digital media projects and general access to creative digital software. 

Bouche hopes this skillbuilder will provide students with more information on how to create and manage videos on the internet and also introduce them to some of the tools and resources available in the tutoring center. 

“YouTube channels are just as much about having fun and being creative as they are about marketing and business,” Bouche said. “YouTube started as an outlet for creativity, and despite its changes over the years, it is still just that.”
