How to Use YouTube Annotations [VIDEO]

How to Use YouTube Annotations [VIDEO] | change your thinking | Scoop.it
There is no one way to incorporate annotations into your videos. The best way is to test out different annotations, and adjust them as you see necessary. Also, do not add an annotation to a video and forget about it.

I want to discuss other ways to optimize your videos for greater viewer engagement. In this article I will focus specifically on annotations, interactive elements that can be added to your video after it is uploaded. At this time, there are six types of annotations that you can add to your videos.

This is a cycle that, unless interrupted, will have generational consequences. What are the implications for Wintec?
