The Right Link to Share

Each video title, segment, or clip has a unique, stable URL that you can email, or add to Word and pdf documents.  To see the URL, click on the "Share" button at the top of the video screen. 

Be sure to use this URL rather than the temporary URL in your brower's address bar.
