  2. Click the “File Upload” option from the menu.

  3. Locate and select the video to upload.

  4. The file will upload, with progress shown in the lower right-hand corner. Wait until the status of the upload says “Uploaded.” (There may be a lengthy pause at the end of the upload. Do not close your browser until you see “Uploaded” after the file size.

  5. After the upload completes, the status window in the lower right-hand corner will change to say “Share.” Click “Share.”

  6. In the “Enter names or email addresses…” field, type laurie.vena@apsva.us.
