Did you use a YouTube video last year, but this year the video is gone? Know that you are not alone. I found a great five-minute video teaching students about political cartoons my first year of teaching in a way that I could never do by standing in the front of the room lecturing. However, I went to show it the following year and it was gone.
At that point I decided “NEVER AGAIN!” I searched the web for a way to download Youtube clips and save them to my hard drive and/or insert them into PowerPoint. Listed below are different tools for downloading videos and safe viewing of Youtube videos. Resources were shared by CSD EdTechs and are free.
