In a previous post I talked about how I download videos from YouTube using a YouTube downloader (I followed that up with another post on how to download videos another way). Someone at the FETC conference in Orlando, FL taught me that I can download videos from YouTube yet ANOTHER way by simply typing an ss before the y in YouTube. This has been much easier for me! (step-by-step directions are in the pictures above)
I use downloaded videos as part of my lessons. Having them downloaded allows me to upload to our Promethean flipcharts or PowerPoint presentations (it also takes out the annoying ads before the clip). I can also upload a video I want students to view into Edmodo or Google Classroom.
