With all of the great tools for teaching computer skills provided on many video sites, it can be terribly frustrating not to have access to them in the classroom! I know this first hand. However, there is a way to convert these forbidden videos--and it is extremely EASY! Yes, I said easy.
I use iLivid As you can see from the image below, it is a very simple process and easy to download. It will ask if you want to install and use "Torch" as your preferred web browser-I did not. So, be sure to uncheck the boxes during the download if you do not want this installed.
I copy the videos on my home computer. iLivid also acts as a viewer, so you will want to download iLivid to your work computer and any others you want to view converted videos on. I use a Google blog just for my classroom to post my videos in, so they are already set-up and ready to go when I need them. Thus, eliminating the need to use the iLivid viewer at work in many instances.
