In addition to videos only, channel searches are another search option. If your search returns to many videos, you may also want to try searching by channel to narrow your results.

d) tagging video: a list of keywords that will help users find your postings when performing a search. These tags are filled out prior to uploading your video (see uploading video below)

e) sharing a video/sharing lists of videos(note: an easy way to share a video link via email can be accomplished by clicking on the share link located below the video you are watching. Simply fill in the fields and send a link out to your students)
