Boclips Launches Curated, Secure Video Platform for EducatorsPosted Apr 16, 2019
With more than 120 partners, the new service offers educational video content that is appropriate for students of all ages and covers every school subject
(Boston, MASS) April 16, 2019 – Boclips today launched its new solution, Boclips for Teachers, a video platform that offers safe and engaging content for students and time-saving solutions for educators. Boclips for Teachers offers an extensive library of material to bring academic topics to life for all ages while deepening students’ understanding of a variety of subjects.
Boclips for Teachers is a school-safe alternative to consumer-focused video platforms that don’t filter for age-appropriateness, can be clogged with ads or toxic comments, and are blocked by many schools and districts. With an easy-to-use platform and no video copyright issues to worry about, Boclips’ platform offers a solution that educators may not have been aware they even needed. By simply cutting and pasting links, educators can supplement lessons in any school subject with short video clips that capture and keep students’ attention.
“Teachers can use Boclips to support student learning by providing students with entertaining educational videos that support state standards,” commented instructional technologist Ana Hale. “Used as part of a just-in-time direct instruction routine, students can benefit from discovering the power of video to enhance and extend their learning. Teachers will love Boclips for the variety of subject matter and the quality information in the videos.”
The platform gathers video clips from more than 120 partners, including Visual Learning Systems, Intelecom Learning, and Crash Course. It offers archived content going back 100 years, providing real-world examples of classroom topics. To find relevant material, educators simply type a topic into the search bar and then create collections of videos, each of which comes with a list of specific, intentional learning outcomes.
The platform enables users to share their collections with other educators, as well as find inspiration in collections created by Boclips. The videos support Common Core State Standards, and new material is added daily.
“Video is forecasted to account for 82% of all the content on the internet by 2022, and we believe it should play a proportional role in the classroom, but in order to do so, educators need to have faith that the content they will put in front of their students is age-appropriate, ad-free, and vetted for quality,” said David Bainbridge, the Founder and CEO of Boclips. “We named our company ‘Boclips’ because Buddha slept under the Bodhi tree, and when he woke up, he understood the world. Our mission is to live up to our name and provide enlightening clips that engage students and help them better understand the world they inhabit.”
