I do have to say though... all of you blog hoppers really kept me sweating! When I glanced at the poll, I thought it was a three-way tie at first! I wouldn't even know what to do if that were to happen!
Now, I'm assuming this goes without saying, but just to be safe: this tutorial is strictly for educational use. By no means can you sell or redistribute the videos you download.
I primarily download YouTube videos for:
- Organization! How nice would it be to have that subtraction song in the "Subtraction" folder on your computer, along with all of the other subtraction resources you have?
- Saving Time! When you're teaching every second is key! The time you spent searching online for a video during class is not as productive as it could be! Redistribute those seconds/minutes to asking higher-order thinking questions about the video!
- Reliability! Even if your internet goes down at work, you'll still have access to that great video that you wanted to show the class!
There are so many ways to download YouTube Videos, but I'm just going to detail my two favorites: one doesn't require you to install any software onto your computer. The other is quicker and more streamline, but requires you to use Firefox.
Now, for the first option: How to download YouTube videos without installing any software. This tutorial uses the website Save Media.
Option Two: The easier way to download YouTube videos (this tutorial only applies to Mozilla Firefox users! This tutorial uses the add-on Flash Got All.)
