Capture a YouTube video on your computer for use in class

YouTube has some great content for the classroom (check out the Education channel here) yet we often need to have the video on our computer for showing later or even need to capture just a portion of the video – to illustrate an idea or concept perhaps.

ClipConverter is a great tool for doing this, allowing you to save the video in MP4, AVI, or MOV formats, in various resolutions, and even clip just a portion of the video as needed. This is probably the best tool I’ve seen for this purpose.  The YouTube Education channel is a great resource, and clipconverter helps in using that content when you need it.
