Your videos are wonderful. I do not have the ability to hook up to a computuer that the district provides because they have working issues, sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. I would like to save the videos to an external hard drive and then using my laptop show the videos to my science classes. How do I save your videos to my external hard drive? I didn't see any way to save. Thanks for your help.

It seems like you are not the only one to have this problem. We hope to eventually have these videos available as mpg4 "downloadable" files on this website. In the meantime, you can download these from the iTunesU-Ohio section of the iTunes store.
