In this paper, we describe the principles, outlines, and implementation of a new undergraduate database course using MeTube (a variation of the well known YouTube) as a motivational semester-long project, which is attractive, fosters creativity in students and is complex enough to introduce DBMS theories and techniques. We provide detailed course assessment results and describe our experience from past two semesters.
