EdTech Tip: Using clipgrab to download videos

April 2016

Have you ever been in this scenario: You are about to show your class that clip from youtube that perfectly describes the concept that you are covering, you click the link and….you are informed that the video is no longer available. OK so obviously you should have checked whilst planning your lesson that all your resources were still available. Sometimes you may wish that you still had access to the clip as nothing else seems to come close to the explanation.

A simple solution I have found is to use a piece of software called Clipgrab to download clips that I have found particularly useful for a particular subject to make sure that I have access to them when the links no longer work. Make sure you check the copyright permissions however before you do. This video will show you how to do it.
