Learn 360

If you have access to Learn360 and its incredible database of videos and lesson plans you know how beneficial they are in the classroom. The only problem is that they take FOREVER to stream. Well here in the Lower Yukon School District we have jumped this hurdle by downloading these videos to the servers of each individual site. This way the teachers of each site can watch the videos from upstairs instead of... oh I don't know... California or Timbuktu!

If A teacher wanted to take it a step further they could also download the videos to their own computer. Pretty cool right?! Yes... but the latest videos (added by the Biography Channel, History Channel, etc) are in a new format. You can still watch and download them, but you need to do a few things first.
