On Friday afternoon I received an email from a reader who was looking for a little help embedding YouTube videos into Canvas. Specifically, this person wanted to know if there was a way to share just a section of video into a course page. Fortunately, YouTube does make this fairly easy to do.
You can embed a video into a Canvas page and have it start playing a specified time of your choosing. To do this you have to click on the “share” button below a YouTube video then click the “embed” option. When you click the embed option you can then specify the time at which you want the video to start playing when it is embedded into a page. In this short video I demonstrate those steps to embed YouTube videos into Canvas course pages.
