Embedding a Video in your blog

Here's something you may want to try to enhance your blog and make it more functional. Media, like digital video, can be presented to students this way as an informational item or a focus or prompt for an assignment. Teachers need not create their own media but may use it from sharing sites (assuming of course there is no copyright issue to contend with).

To embed a YouTube video like the one above in your blog (or other video source if 'embedding' is an offered function) first go to the page view where embedding is offered (see below). Then copy the code in the window below the word "Embed"

Next select the HTML view and paste the code you copied into the blog tool body.
