How to Embed YouTube Video in PowerPoint 2013

How to Embed YouTube Video in PowerPoint 2013
Regular users of PowerPoint have by now noticed that the tool adding YouTube embed code to a PowerPoint 2013 (and 2010) slide has disappeared.  It is no longer possible to simply grab the code, click Insert > Video > Online Video, and paste it in.  The why of it is a bit mysterious, but the trouble started when Google updated their YouTube API from ver. 2 to 3, and only became worse over time as Google and Microsoft have had public disagreements. Whatever the causes, the tool that stopped working in PowerPoint has now, with the latest Office updates, been removed.  Unfortunately, this is still...

Student Use of Video Everywhere in Blackboard

Student Use of Video Everywhere in Blackboard
I just got off the phone with a faculty member who was planning to have students use the Video Everywhere tool. If you don’t recall, that’s the simple tool embedded in the Content Editor in Blackboard that allows for easy recording of video from a webcam or embedding YouTube videos into the course. The tool is available for student use in tools like the Discussion Board, so this professor was going to have students record their presentations and grant access to their fellow students that way.

YouTubes in PowerPoint

There were two items on our agenda for last Friday’s PowerPoint 2 workshop that we didn’t have sufficient time to cover.  One was using exit effects to make things magically appear in PowerPoint, which I posted on Friday; the other was embedding YouTube videos in a PowerPoint presentation.  First I’ll show how it’s done, and then mention a couple of things that can go wrong. The embed procedure is pretty simple.  First, locate the video at YouTube.  Click the Share button, and then click the Embed button.  Some time last year YouTube changed from using Object embeds to iframe...

Our Greatest YouTube Hits for 2011

We in the Academic Technology Resource Center (ATRC) maintain a YouTube channel as one avenue for distributing our training videos.  The videos are almost all click-here/click-there screen videos, or “screencasts,” made with TechSmith’s Camtasia Studio (a product, incidentally, that we are now licensed for across our college District for District owned computers).  A screencast, if you don’t already know, usually illustrates the computer screen with the cursor moving, windows opening and closing, and procedures being performed while the presenter narrates the procedure. ...
