We can watch any tutorials, dance steps, and listen to any music which can be also used as learning materials. It is indeed helpful, but the problem is, what if we don't have an internet connection in our classroom? What if we only have internet connection in our home? Well, I think we can help you with that problem. 

Let's start the tutorial on how to download YouTube videos using any web browser (with screenshots). Before we start, let me enumerate first the things that we are going to use here.

3. Internet Connection

3rd Step:  Edit the url of the video
Remove some characters "https://www."

Put "ss" before "youtube.com/*****". It should look like the screenshot above. Press enter to proceed to the download page.

4th Step: Choose the video resolution that you want
Click the download after selecting your desired video resolution.

5th Step: Save the video

If you're using a smartphone, you don't need to press anything because it'll download automatically after you click download. If your phone wasn't able to recognize the file, simply go to your file manager and rename it. Put the following file extension after the name of the file.
Example:
.mp4 or .3gp it depends on the video format that you download. It should look like this.
video.mp4 or video.3gp

The downloading process will start after performing the steps above. Congratulations! You can now play your downloaded video offline.

How to Control PowerPoint Presentation Using a Smartphone

Hello and Welcome to NON-STOP TEACHING!
Have you ever presented a powerpoint presentation? What type of controller did you use to switch from 1 slide to another?
Some of you might have used a physical remote controller and some uses the keyboard of their laptops or desktops. Well, if I were to choose between the two, I prefer to use the Physical Remote Controller since it is more convenient to use especially if we are walking from side to side. But what if we don't have that physical controller that I've mentioned? You still have 3 options:
1. Use your keyboard
2. Buy a Controller from the Market
3. Use your smartphone

Yes, you read it right! You can use your SMARTPHONE as a controller for your PowerPoint Presentation. Read the tutorial below.
This is the easy tutorial on how to use a smartphone as a remote controller for powerpoint presentation (with screenshots).

Before we start this tutorial, let me ask you one question.
Are you familiar with this icon?
This is SHAREit. A software which is commonly used to transfer files from one device to another. Lots of people are now using this app because it gives a boost in data transferring speed. It is faster than the Bluetooth. Sending and Receiving files are the main features of this software but did you know that it has also a function to control your powerpoint presentation? How? Let's now start the tutorial.

1st Step: Download and Install SHAREit on your Smartphone and Laptop
You have to download and install the files to both devices. 

For Smartphones
Android - Play Store/ Download Link
IOS - App Store/ Download Link

For Laptops/Desktops
Windows - Download Link
Mac OS - Download Link

2nd Step: Run the software on both devices
Let's start with your smartphone. Open the app and click "Receive"
Click the "CONNECT PC" button at the bottom right corner of your screen.
Click the "PC SEARCH MOBILE" button at the bottom right corner of your screen.
 Mobile hotspot will now open.
Put down your smartphone and go to your laptop or desktop
Run SHAREit on your laptop/desktop and click "Search Hotspot of Mobile".
 It will search for your smartphone. Once it is detected, click your device's avatar.
They will now connect to each other. Wait for a second.
There you go! Your devices are now connected. You can now minimize the window.
Go to your file and open your PowerPoint Presentation.
Start the slideshow by pressing the "F5" button or you can also click the "Slide Show" tab and then click "From Beginning" icon at the bottom of the tabs.
The slideshow will now start.
Go back to your phone and then click "PPT Control".
There you go! You can now switch slides using your smartphone.

Conclusion:
There are lots of remote control app that you can use to control powerpoints. Some of them have lots of functions and better features such as "Laser Pointer, Marker, etc.". It's better than the SHAREit app, however, if you want a fast connection and setup, I recommend you to use SHAREit. 

I hope this tutorial helps you.
