As part of your course you may wish to use background music in your video’s. You can use royalty free music for this purpose which means you won’t need to pay royalties of license fees. Each music provider may have different requirements for using their music so it is best to make sure you are aware of these requirements before you use any music. Some requirements may be that you need to give credit to the creator. If you are uploading clips to YouTube for the purpose of monetization, you should check whether the music creator allows monetization in their terms and conditions.
