How to Post VBlogs

Computers are wonderful things and most students enjoy and learn tons when using computers.  However, many states feel there are too many dangers and block certain things. With all the legibility issues today I can understand why but as an educator it can be annoying.  In West Virginia now videos uploaded straight to Blogger will not display.  A big white box will appear.  Globaloria is updating the lesson so this is just a reminder that it is different and here are the steps to make it work.

1.  Upload video to Viddler.
2.  Copy the Embed Code.
3.  In Edit on your blog post, click the html tab.
4.  Paste
5. Publish

One of my students figured this out!  How awesome to know that they will play until they figure it out!
