How did I make it? Login -> Upload -> Create a video lesson -> There's a tutorial on the right about how to make your own video. You choose a funny video from YouTube and try to be as appropriate as possible for your topic, create questions on the topic you need to practise with your students and follow the tutorial. It's easy when you've learnt how to do it! Good luck and thanks for your nice comments!
