Fall In Love With YouTube All Over Again!

YouTube-logo-full_colorYouTube in the classroom can be an awesome tool, and using the YouTube Editor will take teaching and learning to a new level. Customize your video with music clips, speech bubbles, closed captioning and more in a few simple steps.  Visit youtube.com/editor and let the fun begin!

Try adding a speech bubble to your favorite uploaded video.

Go you your channel Video Manager.

Next to the video you want to edit, click the down arrow to the right of the Edit button and select Annotations.

Click the Add annotations button on the right and select Speech bubble.

Customize it to fit your needs.

You can adjust the placement and the length of time the speech bubble is displayed by adjusting the boxes under the video.

And the best part of speech bubbles, you can create links that will redirect students according to their answers.  I am using these links to confirm correct answers or to reteach basic concepts if a wrong answer is chosen.

You may also use the editor to combine multiple videos, trim you clips to custom lengths, add music to your video from a library of approved tracks, and customize clips with special tools and effects.

 

Edit and enjoy!
