Team Duval Tube is a collection of “behind the scenes” short videos posted by educators that capture moments of great teaching, great learning and great student achievement in our classrooms and schools.
First, a DCPS educator records and submits a video.
Then, a member of the district’s communication team will review the video for appropriate content.
If approved, the video will be posted on Team Duval Tube and shared on social media.
Easy Peasy! Just follow the instructions below:
- Record a fabulous video — between 30 seconds and two minutes — that highlights a great moment in learning (See ‘What Are We Looking For’ tab).
- Get to a location where you have a strong internet connection and go to teamduval.org/videosubmit/
- Log onto your account. If you do not already have an account, you can create one here.
- Once logged in, you will be directed to the video submission form.
- Complete form and hit “submit.”
- Wait for approval. You will be notified via email.
- After approval, share with everyone. We know we will. You could go viral!
- Length: 30 second – two minute video.
- Quality: We should be able to see and hear what’s going on. It does not need to be professional grade as long as it is clear and audible.
- Content: Video should showcase one or more of the following:
- Great teaching.
- Student learning and achievement.
- Positive school culture and/or physical and emotional wellness of students.
Accepted file types are mp4, m4v, mov, webm, ogv, wmv, and flv.
A great video doesn’t require full production with lights, camera and editing software. Just look at your Facebook page to see how stories are being communicated every day. Amateur videos are everywhere. Here are some simple guidelines to participate:
- Use a cellphone, tablet or video camera.
- Take horizontal video (sideways shots), if possible.
- Shoot close up rather than zoom. Show faces and activities.
- Capture good sound by getting close or using a microphone.
- Use the exposure/focus lock so it’s automatically set, if available.
- Use a tripod, when practical, to minimize jitter.

Make sure any student recorded has a media release form.
