15. YouTube in Docs

Shout out to Josh Harris for sharing this with me today!  Here is a link to the original tweet.

We all love our Google Docs, except when it comes to working with Docs and YouTube videos.  When we click a link, we get another tab open which opens up possibilities for distractions.

DocuTube is a new add-on in Google Docs that does just that – allows YouTube videos to open in the same window.

Add this onto your Docs by clicking on ‘add-ons’ in the top menu bar and selecting ‘get add-ons.’  Search ‘DocuTube’ and click the FREE button.  Select the account you are using and OK the permissions.

Add in a YouTube link to your Google Doc and find DocuTube in the add-on menu.  Select if you want a pop-out (a larger screen in front of your Google Doc) or a sidebar (which will allow you to still use the Doc as you watch the video!).

Can you say #Hyperdocs integration as well as some awesome differentiated lessons?!  Can’t wait to see how you use DocuTube!
