Exactly and now what?
Surprisingly , a publishing company has given the English Department an overhead projector and given that we have to almost beg for our own children’s books I can only describe it as an act of utter generosity. I should maybe have to explain that although education is compulsory in Spain until you’re 16 ,books are not free; not even kept at the school and handed from student to student . So you can only guess at how much publishing companies earn out of textbooks.
Right , so now I have an overhead projector but… I don’t have an Internet connection. The thing is that I have a funny video that fits like a glove with my next lesson and I want to display it using the OHP.
That’s where this little tool comes very handy. It’s called Savevid and it allows you to download videos from Youtube, Vimeo, Metacafe and some other popular sites to your computer or USB . The only thing you need to do is paste the url of the video you want to download, choose from 5 formats the one that suits you best and play it on your computer.
