Question: How can my students convert an analog video signal into a digital signal?

The IT Guy says:
You may be able to use a digital camcorder as a “pass through†device to do this conversion. Connect a VCR with video and audio “out†plugs into the camcorder and connect it via firewire or USB to your computer, as you would when importing digital video. Push play on the VHS player and turn on the digital camcorder in its playback mode.

If that does not work, you can try purchasing an analog to digital converter like Canopus’ADVC50 (http://www.canopus.us/US/products/ADVC-50/pm_advc-50.asp) for around $200. This device converts analog video into a digital signal for importing into your computer.
