As we all know, unitedstreaming has so many great videos and video clips that we could use daily in our lessons.  The question is – What can we do with the videos after we find them?  Did you know that you can create a hyperlink to a video in a word document?  You can also embed a video into a powerpoint slide for a presentation.  The key is knowing when to hyperlink a video and when to embed it!
