How to Use the Edutopia Embeddable Player
Get Edutopia videos embedded on your own website or blog in just a few minutes!
Edutopia offers an Embeddable Player that makes it easy to showcase any video we have produced -- anywhere on your own website!
We use YouTube to host our videos, so embedding an Edutopia video is as easy as using YouTube's embedding function.
First, check out our entire library of Edutopia videos to search for the video you'd like by title or keyword, or to browse the videos by grade level or core strategy. Click through to visit the page of the video you'd like to feature. Then, click the "Get Video" tab under the video player, which will show you a simple code to cut-and-paste into your own website.
If you want more features, or to change the size of the player, there's another tool available. Go to the very end of the video; the end-screen will look something like this:
Clicking on the "Share" button will give you a few options for sharing the video on various social networks, and there is also an "Embed" button. Clicking there will open up a tool within the player to generate embed code:
You may choose from a variety of pre-set sizes, or enter your own player size. Then, simply copy the raw chunk of code that's generated and paste to your own site to embed the video anywhere you like!
The player that is embedded on your site will be very similar to the ones you see on Edutopia, so you'll give your viewers access to the same sharing options, embedding tools, and links with more related resources back to Edutopia.org, as well as a way to subscribe to Edutopia's YouTube Channel.
For schools that have YouTube blocked, we encourage you to look into YouTube for Schools, a new free program from YouTube that allows member schools to filter out content they don't want, and limit student permissions, while still having access to white-listed educational videos on YouTube.
