What began as an email to staff at my school has become something that I look forward to each week. I love to investigate new resources for those that teach and for those not necessarily in a classroom. I hope that you can find things here that you can use!
We’ve all used YouTube video for various assignments/discussions/announcements/etc. in Canvas. You’ve probably also noticed that at the end of the video, your students get “Suggested Videos” that they can click on after your video ends.
Did you know that with a few simple extra keystrokes when you embed the video you can eliminate those suggested videos?
Let’s remember the process to embed a video from YouTube into Canvas.
1. Find your video.
2. Click “Share” under your video.
3. Click “Embed.”
4. Click “Copy” to get your Embed code.
5. In Canvas, Click Insert Media, then Embed and paste your code from YouTube.
6. Here’s the EXTRA STEP to prevent “Suggested Videos” at the end of your post.
That’s it! By adding “?rel=0” to your embed code, you eliminate the suggested videos at the end of your videos. Notice the location! It’s at the end of the YouTube address and before the frameborder code.
