How to Find and Use YouTube Embed Codes

You might have noticed that YouTube made some layout changes. One of those changes included altering the sharing menu and moving the location of the embed codes for videos. Someone emailed me this morning asking for help on finding the location of the embed codes for YouTube videos. I made the following short screencast to explain where to find and how to use YouTube embed codes.


Applications for Education
YouTube embed codes make it possible to include a video in your blog posts and on your website. I often include videos in blog posts as a way to provide audio and visual explanation of a concept that I have written about. I also use videos in classroom blog posts to spark discussion in the comments section of a blog post.

How to Embed Files from Box.com Into Blogger Posts

In a post in August I explained why I occasionally use Box instead of Google Drive or Scribd to host my large files. There are three reasons why I will choose Box over Google Drive or Scribd. First, the Box.com document viewer looks and functions much better than Google Drive does when it comes to large PDFs. In fact, A Complete Guide to Using Blogger In School is a such a large file that Google Drive won't display a preview of it, it just displays a download link. The second reason that I chose to use Box is that Box will email me a weekly update about the usage of my shared files. I can also log-in whenever I want to see the current usage statistics about my shared files. Finally, I have learned that many schools block Scribd.

Earlier today I received an email from a reader who was looking for directions on how to use the embed tool on Box.com. In the video below I demonstrate how to use Box.com's embed option.
