Top 10 Web sites for students

Picture1 Since Brainy Betty has such a huge audience of educators and students, I thought I would pass along this article about the top 10 web sites for students.

Students can use these great sites to research for school projects and for help with homework assignments!

Have a great week!

YouTube Video Add-in for PowerPoint - you asked for it, you got it!

Use this add in to insert YouTube videos into a PowerPoint slide.

All you need to do is to provide the YouTube video URL that appears in the browser address bar, the rest is taken care of by the YTV Wizard.

Note: YouTube videos are streamed so a live internet connection is required to playback the video during the slideshow. Use the free FlashBack add-in to play/rewind the YouTube video automatically.

This (and many other free PowerPoint addins) are made available by the very talented Shyam Pillai - a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional)! Be sure and contact him and say thanks!

A LOT of people have written to the Brainy Betty site asking for this - we're happy to have found something that will be of benefit to you!


Have a great week,
