We had a blast partnering with Dude Perfect, the YouTube legends with 56+ million subscribers and over 12 billion video views, this summer, and we are thrilled to announce that the fun will continue this fall!
So, if your child loves all things YouTube, we invite them to step into the director’s chair. Alongside guidance and mentorship from our Certified Tech Rockstars, they’ll learn from the best in the streaming biz: Dude Perfect.
When we last checked in with Coby and Cory, they shared their enthusiasm for helping the next generation of content creators learn from over a decade of experience.
"We worked with iD Tech to put together our version of a masterclass of what we've learned over 12 years...What we wanted to do is take all of that time, effort, and experience that we've had over the last 12 years and break it down into individual courses that you guys can learn from," Coby said.
"We want you guys to learn from what we've learned, because we've learned from doing well and from struggling.”
In these 10-week online after-school programs, students will learn the skills they’ll need to craft quality content, build a following, and potentially monetize their YouTube channel, all while learning valuable STEAM skills and a vast range of topics.
"We did stuff on editing, we did stuff on sound, we did stuff on how to film, we did stuff on special effects. And we basically walk you through some of the high points of what we've learned over those years in the hopes that it would help you guys get off on the right foot as you start either your own channel or even just making videos for your family and friends," Cory said of the summer course, which is back in action for fall!
We get it—it can seem daunting to take on the wide world of streaming! But take it from Dude Perfect: success doesn’t happen overnight; it happens one step at a time.
If your child is ready to take that first step, or perhaps level up a channel they’ve already started, here’s what they can expect from the YouTube (and fun!) experts at Dude Perfect and iD Tech in a one-of-a-kind learning adventure.
Learn YouTube & Video Skills from Dude Perfect!
Let’s take a closer look at Video Editing with Dude Perfect and Video Editing and Effects with Dude Perfect, two classes that were simply too awesome to not continue after this summer. They’re back and better than ever in a new format.
In both of these learning experiences, students will have access to exclusive content from Dude Perfect and caring mentorship from an iD Certified Instructor. With an average of 5 students per class, they’ll enjoy all of the benefits of collaborative learning, plus instruction that’s personalized to their interests and goals.
In these interactive courses students will:
- Edit video footage from Dude Perfect
- Explore video creation fundamentals
- Analyze successful brands and videos
- Learn to use the same cutting-edge software as the pros
- Practice digital citizenship and safe online streaming practices
Maybe your child loves to make tutorial videos, or perhaps they spend hours watching gamecasting streamers and want to try their hand at making their own channel. One of the many benefits of learning with YouTube is that there’s no shortage of creative avenues to explore!
In these courses kids and teens will have the opportunity to establish (and hone) video editing skills by working with some of Dude Perfect’s coolest video footage. This removes the intimidation barrier of starting with a blank screen.
Next, they’ll learn the fundamentals of what it takes to become one of the most popular YouTube channels in the world.
In the process of building those skills, students will analyze and discuss some of the most-watched YouTube content on the internet today, which will not only help establish “must haves” for their own channels, but also provide inspiration for some original ideas of their own! If your child aspires to become the next smash hit on YouTube, or simply have a great time while learning sweet video editing skills, this is just the place to do it!

Learn with YouTube and Guidance from the Best
Now more than ever, kids need extracurricular enrichment activities, the opportunity to connect with inspiring mentors, and a supportive space to get excited about learning again.
Because, if you ask Coby and Cory, great content isn’t about what’s trending or the latest influencer’s ideas. The real magic happens when kids make videos they’re truly passionate about. Why settle for what’s already out there, after all? In the right encouraging environment, kids can take the risks needed to find their authentic voice.
And we have just the thing.
With guidance from the best of the best, kids and teens can discover exciting new ways to be creative this fall and find just the right creative project.
Every kid has a unique perspective and interests that are worth sharing, which is why our tech rockstar instructors, alongside the dudes of Dude Perfect, love showing them the ins and outs of video editing, streaming, and crafting excellent videos.
