Explore options for locating and posting the link to a video.
- [Instructor] Once I've uploaded my video to a video host, I need to provide a way for my audience to find it. When I link to a video, my viewers click on the link, which takes them to an external webpage, like YouTube, where they can then watch the video. I'm basically providing a link between my content and the original source file. I can share a link just about anywhere, in an email, on a webpage or learning management system, on my LinkedIn page, or in a newsletter. We're going to take a look at the process for linking to a video from Google Classroom, but basically the process is the same for any webpage or learning management system.
I'm going to click the Add button to create something new, and let's add an assignment. I'm going to give it a title, and I'm going to add some instructions. Down at the bottom, I'm going to click on the chain linked fenced icon. That's the universal symbol for linking, so that's what you'll want to look for on your own site. Now I need the link, so I'm going to hop over to YouTube, scroll down, and click on Share. Now I'm going to copy this link, and I'm going to head back to Google Classroom and paste it here.
I'm going to click Add Link and then Assign, and there you go. Now when students visit my webpage, they can click on the link, and they'll be taken directly to YouTube where they can view the video. Okay, it's your turn. Open up a video file, and grab the link. Then paste it wherever you would like to share it, in an email or on a webpage.
