YouTube Overview

Youtube offers a comprehensive set of tools and features to make hosting, sharing, and managing video easy. 

Once you upload your video to YouTube, you can easily share it with your students. You may provide links to videos or you can embed video within Canvas. Videos can be added to playlists to assemble a collection of videos.

Videos submitted to YouTube receive automatic captioning using Speech-to-Text. Although the caption accuracy may be low, as the video owner, you can edit the captions to improve accuracy.

YouTube also features an interactive transcript, which let viewers see all the spoken words in the video. Clicking on the words within the transcript plays the video from the point where those words are spoken. This is especially helpful if a student is looking for an unfamiliar word or a particular place in the video
