Here are some sites that allow you to do this. (I had to try out a couple depending on the Browser I was using) Here is a site that gives you many different tools to download YouTube and other online videos.

Through Our Eyes - (YouTube) As a result of a McLean’s article in 2007 on how Regina’s North Central neighbourhood is the worst community in Canada, students in Grade 7/8 at Albert School in Regina, with teacher Ben Slowski, produced a digital story to showcase the other side of the story. This kind of experience provides students with a voice to speak up against further marginalization and misrepresentation. (Produced for the Kid Witness News competition)
