How to Embed a YouTube Video on Your Blog Using Your iPad

I am often asked how to embed a YouTube video into an Edublog post when using the iPad so I have created a step-by-step set of instructions below. Please note that you must have both the Edublogs app and the YouTube app downloaded on your iPad. The following set of instructions will not work if you open Edublogs or YouTube in a browser (ie. Safari) on your iPad. Enjoy!

3. Type the name of the video you want to embed in the Search bar. If you are selecting a YouTube video from your YouTube channel, touch the avatar symbol (silhouette of a person); My Videos; and then touch the video you want to embed.
