You automatically have a school YouTube account through Google Drive. To access it, log into NPS Google Drive, then click on the apps waffle in the top right of the screen (3x3 grid of boxes), and scroll down to find YouTube.

Add Spanish Captions: You can use YouTube's video editing tools to add captions to your video. If you want to simply add automatic closed captions (no typing, just rely on YouTube's transcription program to create the captions for you), then click CC at the bottom of the screen. 

To customize captions or change the language you will have to select Edit Video. Since YouTube's new "Studio Beta" doesn't allow caption editing, first you have to switch to "Creator Studio Classic"

Once in Creator Studio Classic, Select Subtitles/CC at the top of the screen, then follow instructions in the video below to add custom subtitles.
