Website of the Week: YTTM

YTTM: YouTube Time Machine (Gr. 6-12)YouTube Time Machine

YTTM is an interesting spin on sorting through the vast archive of videos available from YouTube. Use the timeline provided at the top of the page to select a year you wish to investigate. The site will then randomly display a video from the time period. Use the filters to the right of the video window to narrow the pool of videos the site pulls from.

  • Note that this site is still in alpha mode and therefore you may encounter bugs or glitches when using the site.
  • If you find a video you’d like to keep or refer back to later, use the “Share Video” link beneath the video pane to grab the direct URL for the video.
