Teaching with YouTube: Customizing the Start Time of a Video

When you integrate YouTube videos (that aren't yours) into your online course content, you may sometimes want to show your students just a particular part of the video, rather than the whole thing.  If you were teaching in a classroom, you could easily skip to the essential point and play from there but teaching online makes that tricky.  Today I learned that YouTube has created a very simple method for customizing the start time of a video you share with others.

This 2-minute video illustrates how it works.  Unfortunately, it only works when sharing a link and not with embedding.
