Catch YouTube - View YouTube Offline

One of the most popular posts I've written in the last couple of months is "Can't Use YouTube? Try This." In that post I shared four different tools that teachers can use to convert and download files from YouTube that can then be played directly from your computer instead of from the web.

Catch YouTube is another free resource for converting and downloading YouTube videos. Catch YouTube offers eight formats for video conversion. The one video that I converted today took only a couple of minutes to complete.

Applications for Education
Catch YouTube and similar services are useful for teachers working in schools that block YouTube. If there is a YouTube video that you want to use in the classroom, convert it and download to a laptop or flash drive at home then bring it in to school.

If you've ever wondered if there is anything of educational value on YouTube you may want to check out one of these videos.
