Last month, I had the opportunity to learn and share at San Gabriel Valley CUE's local ed tech conference, Techo de Mayo. During the conference, I attended a fantastic session by Bill Selak where he shared an awesome resource that I want to pass on.
Ever found a YouTube video at home that would be perfect for instructional use in the classroom, only to remember that YouTube is blocked at your school? Wouldn't it be great if you could download a video from YouTube, put it in your Dropbox or on a flash drive, and then transfer it to your school computer to show to your students? Well, you can through a great, free resource at www.clipconverter.cc. This fantastic, easy-to-use website enables you to paste in the URL (Web address) of a YouTube video, and the site will convert the video and download it to your computer. How cool is that?
Here are some great features of the site:
If you're a visual learner, here’s a short tutorial video I put together showing you exactly how to use ClipConverter: https://vimeo.com/42620847
Again, thanks to Bill for sharing this cool tool during his session at Techo de Mayo. If you're not already following Bill's work (billselak.com and @billselak), I highly recommend you do so.
Happy clipping, everyone!
