You can also search the transcript or download it in PDF form using the two buttons in the top right.
Clips can be created if you are signed in to a profile. If you are not signed in when you try to create a clip, you will be prompted to sign in or create a profile. In creating a clip you can define a start point, end point, and a description for clip-viewers.
Use the scrub bar as a mechanism to pick the start and end of each clip, or enter the time stamps manually.
A clip has a unique URL that can be shared with anyone.
You can use embed codes to embed videos into webpages or learning management systems. To pull an HTML embed code in the form of an iFrame widget, click the embed icon in the top right of the video player.
Embed codes are available in three pre-defined sizes, but you can also edit those sizes. Once you have chosen your size, copy and paste your embed code into your chosen HTML or content management system.
To embed a CLIP instead of a full video or pre-defined segment, create a new clip, and you will be prompted to either save that clip to your list. Save it to your list, and then pull the embed code from the menu that pops up.
