Q: How can I take a 45 minute lecture from you and download it into my computer so I can look at it leisurely without spending 45 minutes on the internet thereby using my GB’s because those are limited.   John

A: When I view one of our Youtube videos, there is a button to download that video. You won’t see that button because the video does not belong to you. We have no problem with you downloading it for offline viewing, but you would need to use a 3d party tool to do that. Here’s an article about available 3d party download tools.

We don’t normally download those videos because they are so large (300-600 MB) – viewing on Youtube is really the best way. But we can. If there’s one you want to request so you can watch it multiple times, we can download it then make it available in a dropbox folder.
