There are often times when teachers come across video content on YouTube that they wish to use in the classroom. However, it may be that they really only want the audio content of the video eg. a song/rhyme. It may be that the teacher feels that the video content is distracting or that YouTube is blocked in their school. I recently came across a video on YouTube where I only wanted the audio. I discovered the Listen To YouTube website and I think that teachers would find great use for this site. There are other websites that do the same thing, but I found this site particularly easy to use.
When you come across a video on YouTube where you only want the audio, simply get the YouTube URL, and the website software will transfer the video to their server, extract the MP3, and give you a link to download the audio file. There is no sign-up for the website and it really is very easy and quick to use. Once you download the MP3, you can then save it on a memory stick or on other online services like Dropbox or Google Drive and have the audio ready to use in the classroom.
