What does this do and why might a teacher care?
Keepvid is a website designed to aggregate and index copyrighted YouTube videos, and allows users to rip content from YouTube, Google Video and other services to their hard drives.
What is this?
For teachers, Keepvid is applicable if the Web Browsers in school do not allow acess to You Tube or Google Video. Teachers can download the videos they would like to show in class or post to their websites right to the hard drive and save it.
Keepvid is a liscenced software offered for Windows Operating Systems--you must have Windows XP. You might also need the Internet to find already existing videos on You Tube or Google Video.
Application in Innovation:
If a teacher cannot directly log onto You Tube at school but would like to show interesting and innovative videos applicable to the curriculum; then, Keepvid can stream the video right from You Tube or you can downlaod the video right to your hard drive.

Applications in Efficiency:
Instead of reinventing the wheel, teachers can reduce overhead by using already existing videos online and dowload them to their hard drive to show in the class room. Teachers can also have students download information to their personal computers using Keepvid as well, which saves time.
