I highly recommend this free open course from MIT: Becoming the Next Bill Nye: Writing and Hosting the Educational Show
This article from Emily Robbins covers the art museum end of things and her slideshow covers good general information and tips about museums and YouTube channels. (There’s also her presentation from Museums and the Web 2015 if you want more citations, references, etc.)
Great big list of educational STEM channels on YouTube (I’m always adding to this list, so if you know of one I haven’t included, please let me know!)
