Harnessing the power of YouTube: You Too! Stacey Kramer, AHC Learning Commons Inserting a YouTube video in your PowerPoint presentation **Please note that you will need to have the Adobe Shockwave Active X control installed in order to be able to add .swf files to your PowerPoint presentation. The Adobe Shockwave installer can be found here: http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/. Additionally, this method is only linking the video (in other words, you need to have an internet connection to view the video). We are using this method in compliance with copyright ethics. 1. Open PowerPoint and create a blank slide. 2. On the menu, go to View and make the Control Toolbox active. 3. In the Control Toolbox, select More Controls (far right) and then select Shockwave Flash Object. 4. Once you have selected the Shockwave Flash Object, you will get a crosshair. Use this to draw a box inside the slide. 5. Right click the box that you just drew and go to Properties. 6. In Properties, you will see a line called Movie. This is where you will enter the URL for the movie that you would like to link to your PowerPoint presentation. But, before we do anything here, we will locate the URL for the movie we are using. 7. Choose your YouTube video. Copy the URL shown here: 8. Going back to the PowerPoint, open the Shockwave Flash Properties box (refer to # 6), paste your URL into the Movie field. 9. But Wait! This link will not work until we make a minor change. We need to remove “watch?v=“ and replace it with “v/” as in this example: 10. Close out of Properties and Save your project. 11. On the main menu, go to View and then Slide Show to see your finished product. Inserting a YouTube video in your Moodle course There are several ways to incorporate YouTube in your Moodle course site. This is one example: 1. Select the YouTube video you would like to embed. 2. Copy the code from the Embed field (to the right of the video window) by selecting all the code and then click Ctrl+C (or Command+C for Mac). 3. Open your Moodle course. 4. Turn editing on. 5. You can use the Add a resource drop down menu to choose what you would like to build. In this example, I will choose Insert a Label. 6. Toggle the HTML source button on the toolbar (the < > icon). This will take you into HTML mode. 7. Paste the code you have previously copied from Youtube into this box (Ctrl+V (Win)/ Command+V (Mac)). 8. Click on save to return to course. You should see the embedded video on course page (please see example below).
