YouTube Tips, Tricks, and Tools for Teachers

  1. Tips, Tricks, and Resources for Teachers
  2. Link directly to any point in a video by right-clicking on the play marker and selecting “Copy video URL at current point.”
  3. Disable the appearance of “related videos” by typing &rel=0 at the end of the video url.
  4. When available, view interactive transcripts of videos by clicking on the button.
  5. Turn on close captioning to read along with the audio of the clip. You can drag the text anywhere on the screen and control fonts, colors, sizes, and more by clicking on “options.”
  6. Use a tool like ViewPure (www.viewpure.com) or QuietTube (www.quiettube.com) to view and share YouTube videos with no additional visual clutter or distractions.
  7. Make any YouTube video play on repeat by simply adding the word “repeater” after the word “youtube” in the video url. This tool will also allow you to loop only a portion of the video.
  8. Skip directly to the “important” parts of a video by adding &wadsworth=1 to the end of the YouTube video url.
  9. Access videos blocked in your country by changing the ending of the video url from watch?v=IEIWdEDFlQY to /v/IEIWdEDFlQY. This will also launch the video in fullscreen.
  10. Quickly and easily download any YouTube video by adding ss to the URL right before “youtube”.
  11. Use TubeChop (www.tubechop.com) to quickly and easily crop YouTube videos and share only the best parts.
