    You’ll find the share icon on the right of the thumbnail image in the search results, or on the top left side when in full-screen view.
    After clicking on the share icon, a pop-up will appear on screen in the Boclips for Teachers platform. 
    Tip: If you only want to share a portion of a video, note the start and end time of the part you’d like to show. Enter the timestamps into the corresponding fields.

  6. Fill out any additional information associated with the selected action.
    This may include adding a description, instructions, bullet points, a due date, topics, or enabling or disabling student comments. From there, assign, post, ask, schedule, or save as a draft.
  7. View the resource in Google Classroom.
    While this is a completely optional step, it is always nice to be able to preview what the shared resource will look like in Google Classroom.
