Last month I had each of you signup for a few free magazine subscriptions. When I got home tonight after class, my October issue of Technology and Learning was here. This months issues featured three articles that we discussed in class this evening.
1. Downloading YouTube Video - According to the article, the authors liked Zamar (and was able to move the file to his ipod). He tested several tools and like Zamzar, a free online file conversion service.
Here is the link to the article
"To use Zamzar, you can either upload a file or enter the file's URL, then choose a format you want to convert to, enter your email address (to receive a link to the converted file), and click Convert. I chose to convert to MP4 for my iPod. It took about three minutes for the conversion, and a few minutes later I received an e-mail telling me the file was done and giving me a link to download it."
