# 1 - Watchkin
Watchkin is another great YouTube video alternative that I recently learned about. It provides a safe environment for watching YouTube videos, as well as creating a safe URL similar to SafeShare.Tv and NiceTube. Users can also search for YouTube videos within the website, which makes it a very good tool to use in the classroom.
#2 - Embed YouTube Video in Google Slides
If you are looking for an easy way to show videos without the distractions, you might want to try embedding a YouTube video in a Google Slides presentation. Your presentation can be shared with students and they do not have to be distracted by suggested videos.
How does this work?
- First, create your Google Slides presentation.
- Next, you will choose the Insert menu and select "Video."
- Then, you will need to search for your YouTube video. As a side note, you can insert videos from Google Drive tool.
- Finally, you will choose "Select" to embed your video in your presentation.
# 3 - NearPod
Simply embed the link of your video in a NearPod slide and students are ready to watch!
Do you have any other alternatives to YouTube? I would love to hear about them! Leave a comment below.
