Screen Cast / Screen Share is an Excellent Teaching Technique.

Technology is always changing, and there’s always something new to learn… and share.

Find/Create Embed Link Code for Scheduled YouTube Video

For some time now, I have been publishing how-to videos on YouTube. More recently has been the creation of this blog on the website.   Merging the two together has been a huge milestone goal in order to delivery great video content paired up with some additional written information.

Because I didn’t know how to create my own embed code, I trolled several YouTube videos in search of a how-to video. While there were many videos on how to find the embed code for a published video, nowhere could I find a video tutorial on where to locate the embed link code for a scheduled video.
