Make The Best of YouTube's Educational Content with These Chrome Extensions

Share this post:  
YouTube is one of the major sources of educational video content we draw on in our teaching. Over the years, this video service has developed into a powerful video hosting and editing platform with a number of key features being offered for free. And while I do find the advertising part in YouTube very disruptive, I solved this problem by subscribing to the premium version. However, if you are like us ,an avid user of YouTube, we highly recommend these two Chrome extensions. They will help enhance and transform your viewing experience. Check them out and share with your colleagues.
1- Turn off the Lights

‘With a single click on the lamp button, the page will fade to dark. And automatically focus on the video. By clicking on it again, the page will return to normal.Turn Off the Lights is a lightweight and useful add-in designed for a more comfortable watching experience. It works for all known video sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Hulu, Metacafe, YouKu, etc.’

2-Adblock for YouTube

‘Install Adblock for Youtube™ now and all the Pre-Roll Ads on Youtube™ are gone, forever! The enhanced Adblock removes any ad videos shown before your video as well’
