The behavior and functionality of Clips in a web browser and Whiteboard is the same.

Search for videos

In a web browser, at the top of the screen there is a   searchbox for all videos.

On the left there is a menu for viewing organized lists of videos by:


    Collections (organized by academic discipline)

    My Playlists (lists of videos, also supports links to Google Drive documents for lesson materials)

    Shared With Me (playlists that others have shared to you)

    My Quiz (view your quizzes)

    Liked Video

    Bookmarks (saved collections)


Also on the homepage there are selected videos from academic disciplines - click See All on the right of each group to browse similar videos. You can share an individual video by clicking   Share underneath the video.

Playlists

You can organize videos into playlists, including adding a text description and links to files stored on Google Drive (for example, lesson plans and activity guides). By default you will have one playlist called Watch Later.

To create a new playlist, underneath a video click the      Save button, then New Playlist. You can name your playlist now, and also edit the name later.

To view, share, edit, or delete a playlist, first click the playlist from the dropdown menu under     My Playlists in the menu on the left.

    •   share via Facebook1

1 Note: sharing a playlist via Linkedin, Facebook, and Twitter will be viewable by anyone who opens the link. Sharing using the first two methods above means the playlist is viewable by people you specify only.

Create a quiz in Clips

Clips supports creating quizzes for videos. Teachers can choose the video, edit the questions and format (including timing of questions), and then share via Classroom, as a web link, or display it in Whiteboard. The students can then play the video, which automatically pauses as each question, and answer the questions. The teacher can then see the results afterwards.

  3. Underneath the video, select   QUIZ then Create a new quiz

  7. Once all questions are added, click Back, and then the upload icon  , and name the quiz (visible to students).
  8. Click   to get a shareable link to give to your students. Once the students open that link and login, they can complete the quiz.

To check the quiz results, click from the QUIZ section.

Clips Add-ons

Although   myViewBoard Clips has proven its capability of helping all teachers with entity accounts, but complimentary options only allow 2 concurrencies of video-playing. This means only 2 teachers can play the Clips videos at the same time. Therefore, we suggest upgrading your Clips package if you wish to:

  1. Allow more teachers to use Clips simultaneously in your entity.
  2. Get 20 teachers and 600 students benefited from video-assisted learning at home.
  3. Set up a perfect in-class/hybrid learning environment.


Clips in different learning scenarios

  • In-class learning involves face-to-face instruction in a physical environment. When using Clips in the classroom, students can directly enjoy it. Thus, for schools with no need for remote teaching, we recommend an in-class learning package. Note that In-class learning does not support Classroom.

  • Hybrid learning is when some students attend your class in person, while others join the session virtually away from the classroom. In this case, teachers can broadcast videos with Classroom/Whiteboard. If students are joining a Classroom session, the school must select hybrid learning package to support playing videos for the students.
