The right video clip can help you make a point in a lesson by showing a “real world” application of a concept. And, of course, a good video clip can provide instruction or reinforcement of a concept. Finding the right video clip isn’t always easy. You could search on YouTube for a long time without getting the right clip. That’s when it’s time to try ClassHook.
ClassHook is a fantastic service that can help you find educational video clips to use in your classroom or as part of lessons that students complete online. ClassHook picks up where YouTube falls short. ClassHook’s does this by providing tools to search for video clips according to subject and topic. The bulk of the clips that you will find through ClassHook come from well-known television shows and movies.
New Premium Features
The options to search for video clips according to subject, topic, and grade level are completely free for all users. This week ClassHook introduced a premium plan ($25/ year) that gives you access to advanced search tools. The premium search tools let you refine your search according to standards alignment and decade of the video clip’s production.
ClassHook’s premium plan also includes the option to collaboratively create playlists with other users of the service. You can start a playlist and then invite your colleagues to make contributions. Your colleagues don’t even have to have a premium account in order to make contributions.
ClassHook’s free service still includes options to search according to subject, topic, and grade level. The free plan also includes a profanity filter for all users. And users of the free plan can still request clips if they cannot find one in ClassHook’s library.
