Technology & Downloads

The following video demonstrates the installation of an UnZip helper application on a iPad and successfully downloading a .ZIP compressed file for use in the classroom.

This tutorial will walk you through using the Media Library feature on your Shop.DavidCCook.org account page. For many titles, we have changed the way in which we deliver video so that you may stream directly to any device without downloading the large files. In addition to streaming, you may also download the video file(s) in several HD formats.

Many of the resources or samples David C Cook delivers to you are collections of multiple files and media in a single download package, or .ZIP file. To use the individual files on your computer, you will click or double-click the filename to open and reveal the files contained inside. In rare cases, a computer may not have the correct program registered to open the downloaded .ZIP file. The following video demonstrates how to register Windows Explorer to be the default program to open .ZIP files.
