del.icio.us Tidbits: YouTube

Here is the periodic sampling from my del.icio.us favorites list. This time I chose the tag "YouTube," as it is being broadly used for instructional ends. It is also a flexible tool. YouTube videos can be embedded into PowerPoint and SlideShare presentations as well as webpages, social media sites, etc. Here's what I found I have:

7 Things You Should Know About YouTube: From Educause Connect, this .pdf article describes what YouTube is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning.

How to embed high quality YouTube videos: From Download Squad, an article describing how to embed a higher quality version of YouTube videos than what is commonly used.

TubePress: TubePress is an open source PHP library that displays YouTube video galleries in your blog. It's available as a WordPress plugin or as a stand-alone PHP library.

YouTube videos inside SlideShare: A how-to SlideShare presentation on embedding YouTube vid's into SlideShare.

How to add or embed You tube videos into power point slide shows: From TechnoSpot, a step-by-step post on using the YouTube Video Wizard, a Power Point plugin.

How to Insert YouTube Videos in PowerPoint Presentations: From Digital Inspiration, another how-to on the YouTube Video Wizard, this time using video.
