Flipping the Classroom with Discovery Ed


I am excited to find a way to share videos and segments of videos with my students to access at home through the subscription to Discovery Education. I download videos that I want to my dropbox and then share the link with my students. Having them in my dropbox allows me remember what videos I have as resources rather than having to check Discovery Ed’s website in addition to my own curricular files.

  1. Find the video or clip.
  2. Click the word Download located above the video.
  3. On the right there is a button that says, Currently Downloading. Click it.
  4. Select H.264 300K. This will be able to be played from the web on a PC or an Apple product, including an iPad or iPhone.  It saves as MPEG-4.
  5. Save to dropbox.
