    Click ENTER and (if at school) enter your filter override credentials. You should be routed to a site called Save.net where you can download various formats of your video. (BE CAREFUL to not click on the many advertisements blinking on the page!)
    Finally: Click the video format you wish to save (.Mp4) and download the video to your desktop or upload it to your Blackboard course (or save it anywhere you wish). The video can now be viewed without a filter override password. Heck, now that it's saved to your computer, you won't even need an internet connection. (But the kids will if they're viewing it within a BB course).

    An interesting viewpoint on the use of free video and class resources without the benefit of teacher interaction:

    Looking for just the right video clip to illustrate a point or to catch students' attention? Try searching these sites:
    Discovery Education (Formerly called "United Streaming") You can access hundreds of thousands of videos, either in their entirety or clip by clip, and play them immediately through video streaming, or download them and save them to play from your computer's hard drive, a jump drive, or a CD. Videos are accompanied by lesson plans, downloadable worksheets and activities, and more. This resource contains a huge clip-art and image library, a special events calendar, and a powerful search engine allowing teachers to search by subject, grade level, and/or standards alignment. Students may also access this resource if you create student accounts, and all of the videos and images are copyright-free to subscribers, so they make excellent resources for students making video presentations using Microsoft MovieMaker or iMovie. In addition, teachers can set up writing prompts and other types of assignments for students to complete through the site. Homework helpers and links to great websites for students to explore at school and at home are also provided. NWLSD Teachers must first create an account to access all of the features of the site. Please contact Kathy Fiedler for account startup information. Stay tuned for announcements of PD events throughout the year to help you use DE for MORE than just showing videos to your class!!!

    How to Make an Interactive Lesson Using YouTube! Yes, that's right! You can make an interactive YouTube video!!! Set it up so students can respond to questions within the video, which links to another video (depending upon whether their answer was correct or incorrect). The "incorrect" video path may include a video explanation, if you wish. If you want to avoid filtering issues, put your video inside Blackboard and make sure that "open links in new window" is NOT selected. Click on the link above for a tutorial that will teach you how to create these interactive videos.
    If you use YouTube videos, why not get a bit creative? Try this: Use YouCube. Copy the URL of your favorite YouTube clip and paste it into the field for YouCube, and you've got two benefits: 1. No ads or distractions and 2. The kids will be amazed at your tech skills.
