On Adding YouTube Content to WordPress, Moodle, and Your School’s Web

Often while adding a YouTube video to some site you are using for educating your learners you wish to alter the playing experience.  I recently had the experience of having a perfectly acceptable video which had potentially less acceptable videos show up on the related video screen at the end.  While the tool I was using had limited controls I was able to remove related videos by simply adding the YouTube Embedded Player Parameters to the string the tool used for inserting the videos.  In my case:

rel

Values: 0 or 1. Default is 1. Sets whether the player should load related videos once playback of the initial video starts. Related videos are displayed in the "genie menu" when the menu button is pressed. The player search functionality will be disabled if rel is set to 0.

Blogging for Mobile Devices

I just added the WordPress Mobile Edition as a result of my recent road trip across the country.  Think of this as a must have for your platform in today’s world.  Visit http://mobile.nytimes.com using your phone.  Incredibly useful and lightning fast, even when compared to the NYTimes iPhone Application which pales by comparison.
