  2. How have traditional media been affected with the advent of YouTube?
  3. How do you think YouTube will provide a platform for journalism in the future?


(1) Skills: MultiMedia:

Bring an image you’d like to add to a blog post — remember that you need to have the right to use the image! Also, bring a link to a YouTube clip that you’d like to feature in a blog post. We’ll learn how to do one of these on Thursday (and the other one next week)!

Today – embed a YouTube Clip!

(1) Find a YouTube clip that you want to include in your blog post. Copy the URL (link) to the clipboard. If you are watching on YouTube, it’s the main URL in the browser; if you are watching on a blog, click “menu” (lower right corner), click “copy URL to clipboard”

(2) This is the syntax:

[ youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6SefbFbixI ]
