I would like to offer some advice based on my own experience teaching Photoshop courses.
I have found that nothing beats putting together 60 or 70 side-by-side pairs of before-and-after images that address the techniques that our group will be learning during the semester and showing them as a slide presentation during which time I discuss, in non-technical terms, the method used in each case. The students are prompted to ask questions in the event I inadvertently uses terms that are unfamiliar to them. The slide presentation is produced with Bridge. I have found this far more beneficial than a video which may proceed at a pace that may be entertaining but not really educational.
In addition, almost all the "before" the images presented are then used throughout the term as the students work at computers during the instructional part of each class. This is one of the images from my set.
Perspective correction, stretching the image, clouds, open shadows.
Photoshop takes years to master. I don't think one video can possibly cover everything. What are your students mainly interested in right now? That might narrow things down a bit.
thank you for the valuable tip, but I wanted my students (who will only discover photoshop for max 20 hours) get a bit warm ;-). But discussing what you see is indeed a lot more instructive.
You can do a lot, but asking for "all" the tips and tricks for a 20 hour course is just impossible.
'To Show the Possibilities of Photoshop'
Taking that statement from your subject line, I am going to throw in Bert Monroy's Times Square illustration.
An illustration you can zoom way way in on
And then zoom in some more
And know that it was made entirely with Photoshop over several years. All the textures, perspective, the shadows cast... It was all made using Bert's skill with Photoshop, with some help from Illustrator.
