Download Online Videos

There is a simple workaround for providing content from blocked video sharing websites such as YouTube, although it does involve a bit of extra effort and planning.

KeepVid and Vixy are two sites that enable you to download online videos from a variety of video sharing websites. Simply enter the video's URL and download the file. Another example is the VideoDownloader site.

The Vixy site also enables you to convert the video into different formats depending on how you are going to use it. For example you can covert it to a mov file and burn it to a CD.  It could also be converted to the mp4 format, transferred to an iPod and then played through a TV for whole class viewing (that's if you have the iPod!).

This is an example of a video that, I think, would be well worth the effort of downloading and using.
