This week: Working with YouTube videos in the classroom
This snazzy tool is a free web application that enables users to download videos from 57 different sites - simply enter the video's URL and KeepVid will locate the download links available. A great antidote to blocking and buffering.
EduCanon allows teachers to take existing video from YouTube and add their own content (like embedded questions, activities, etc.) to create flipped or blended classroom activities. The free service is tailor-made for a 1:1 environment.
Installing this handy extension in your toolbar is all you need to do to remove ads, sidebar content, comments, and other distractions that surround the video itself. You can also share a link of the video in Quietube mode. Works with Vimeo, too!
