Using YouTube

There are many YouTube videos that may enhance your discussion of the basics of human anatomy and physiology or application of concepts.

For example, you can simply take a term such as appendicitis and hyperlink it to a specific, related YouTube video that you want your students to visit. Go ahead and click the linked term in the previous sentence to see how it works.

Or you could embed a YouTube video within a webpage or PowerPoint slide:


Why use YouTube videos in your A&P course?

There are many ways to use these videos as teaching and learning tools. You are limited only by your imagination. The more you use them, the more ways you'll find to use them. But the only way for that to happen is to TRY IT! Just once! That's all it takes to get started.

Here are some ways you can use YouTube in your anatomy & physiology course:


Finding YouTube videos

Frankly, this is the hardest part!

Use the search box at YouTube to find clips related to the topic you want to illustrate. That's easier said than done, because the search is likely to return many videos that have nothing at all to do with what you are looking for. Besides that, those that are related may be of questionable quality, content, or appropriateness for your course. So you basically have to sift through them.


How to link or embed videos

It's easy! Really.

Just go to the YouTube instructions for sharing for some different ways to share them. Or use my step by step instructions below.



YouTube Channels

Channels are sets of videos on YouTube that are usually posted by one person or organization and often have a related theme. If you click the Channel tab near the top of any YouTube page, you'll get a sample of popular channels and along the left side, a menu from which to choose a general topic. You can also search for channels using the search feature found on any page.
