Video Help

There are full screen, closed captioning, and transcript options for each video tutorial on OSLIS. All of the videos are hosted on both Vimeo and YouTube. Since some school districts block one site or the other, the videos are also available on SafeShare. Please note that YouTube may display ads and/or questionable videos from other sources.

Full Screen

If you do not see the option to view the video in full screen mode (Full Screen Icon), try one of the other links provided above the video.

SafeShare / No Ads

    • SafeShare provides a way to watch a video with no ads or other videos on the page. (A link can be made for any video hosted on Vimeo or YouTube.)
    • The SafeShare version of the video has the same content as the original source. Some features may not work, like closed captioning.

Closed Captioning

Closed captioning (CC) is the process of displaying on the screen the written text of the words as they are spoken in a video.
