Make Video News Available on Your Blog 24/7

Google Web Elements is a gallery of useful widgets that can be easily embedded into most blogs and websites. One of the widgets that could be useful for teachers of current events is the YouTube News Widget. The YouTube News Widget provides your viewers with the newest video stories from your preferred news source. You can choose from a list of thirteen news providers including CBS, The New York Times, and the Associated Press.

To install the YouTube News Widget all you have to do is select your preferred news provider, copy the embed code provided by Google, and paste that code into your blog or website. In Blogger and Google Sites this is particularly easy to do. Embedded below is the widget using the New York Times as my preferred provider.
