How to Add Youtube Videos in Google Slides, set the start and end times and create a playlist
Check out this short video to see how easy it is to use Google Slides to create a Youtube playlist and control the start and end times for each video. Another benefit is that when you insert the Youtube videos in Slides, it strips away all of the comments and videos on the side! +Google for Education 

How to Set Up Screen Recording for Your iPhone with iOS 11 (and How to Customize Your Control Panel)
This is such a cool feature!
  1. Go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls (Here you can add several tools to your Control Center.)
  2. Look for the Screen Recording tool (white circle around a white dot) and click the plus button to add it.
  3. Swipe up (from the bottom, on any screen) to go to the actual Control Center
  4. Click the Screen Recording button to start (if you want to add voice to your screen recording, you’ll need to hold down that same button until a pop-up window gives you the option to turn your microphone on)
  5. When you’re finished, click the red bar at the top of your screen to stop (if you don’t see the red bar, go to your home screen).
