Kwout is a site I’ve written about before that deserves another mention.Â It allows you to take a snapshot of any part of a website and embed that snapshot (with all links hot) onto your own site.Â I use it all the time on my classroom blog to direct students to a specific site.Â You can also use it to:
– Highlight a specific part of a website (such as a ‘Click Here’ button)
– Cut out distracting advertisements
– Focus on a specific spot to avoid mis-clicks
KickYouTube is the easiest way (in my opinion) to download YouTube videos, because it only involves typing the word “kick”. My wife is a teacher and her school had some internet issues, but she needed to show a clip from YouTube for her world history class. Since their internet was spotty, here is what I told her to do.
1. Find the youtube video you want –
2. Right before the “you” in youtube, type “kick” and hit enter –
3. This reloads to a slightly different looking page where you can download the youtube video (press the green GO button at the top right of the page)
