Clips Add-ons

Although Icon Clips.svg 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.
