2020 has seen educators have to rapidly adapt to an entirely new way of planning, teaching, assessing, and resourcing. As schools and teachers continue to navigate the new normal, ClickView is here to help, with hundreds of their most popular educational videos available free during COVID-19.

As trailblazers in the world of digital education, ClickView puts the highest-quality video content for effective teaching and learning and deeper understanding at the fingertips of educators and students. Already trusted by over 4500 schools, colleges, and universities around the world, the free site was created by the team within a matter of weeks at the beginning of the pandemic. Aiming to ensure that there were no barriers to making the most of resources, no account logins, passwords, or subscriptions are required to access. 

To date, over 250,000 pages of free video from ClickView have been accessed. In addition, school-based adopters through the free initiative saw many 1000s of students gaining access to 1000s of quality educational video resources for them to explore and learn. As the uncertainty of the pandemic continues, ClickView has taken the decision to extend the use of the free platform, so educators can continue to provide students with the best-quality educational resources.

Visually stunning, curriculum-aligned video content at your fingertips, all 100% free

The huge catalogue of content is all curriculum-aligned, created by educators for educators. With nearly 800 videos available to browse, the library is split into Primary, Secondary and Teacher Professional Development resources, with subcategories for each key stage covering core subject areas, as well as student wellbeing. Helping to keep students engaged, the platform includes free access to educational video quizzes for blended learning.

As a result of the free platform, the team are delighted to have just been officially recognised as a ‘UK Business Hero 2020’ by the British Chamber of Commerce and HRH The Countess of Wessex. Launched by the British Chamber of Commerce in September, the campaign sought to acknowledge the incredible work UK businesses were doing, in what has been a hugely challenging year.

In addition, responding to the pressures felt by educators in adapting to new methods, ClickView partnered with leading EdTech companies including Adobe, Makematic, iCivics and Participate to deliver a ‘Teaching Online Masterclass - ‘TOM’. 

A free video course for educators about how to teach online, featuring some of the world’s best thought leaders and instructors, it is full of practical strategies for online teaching.

Blended Learning 

Head of ClickView UK, Michael Wilkinson, passionately believes that blended learning strategies remain a necessity, both in the long and short term. 

“Expanding online learning platforms and getting a better understanding of the key differences between physical and online teaching practices, so that teachers can be better equipped to confidently teach online, is of paramount importance and something that cannot be overlooked.

"We live in a digital world, the way we consume media and news has changed dramatically over the past decade, with online streaming services and subscriptions now being part of the norm. According to the latest Ofcom Media Nations report, changing behaviour during the pandemic appears to have accelerated the growth in viewing of online video.

"This rise in consumption of online video and its effectiveness to engage audiences highlights its importance as a powerful and important tool, which can no longer be overlooked in an education setting.”

What high-quality blended learning should offer:

  • The opportunity for learners to demonstrate and apply learning
  • The opportunity for learners to collaborate together online through meaningful activities 
  • Regular feedback - crucial to maintain engagement and to gauge learner progression
  • Opportunity for regular knowledge checks – online activities should be interactive rather than passive
  • High-quality learning resources that are current, relevant, aligned to the curriculum and well produced
  • A range of multimedia formats – video being a powerful tool 
  • Key aspects of face to face teaching should be reflected online in both synchronous and asynchronous formats – include introduction, outline objectives of the session, regular knowledge checks, feedback and a plenary
  • Face to face time should be used to unpick what additional support learners require and scaffold online learning episodes accordingly
  • A space online for informal communities for peer support

  • Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?
    Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?

    Over the weekend, my family of five went to an Orlando theme park, and I decided we should really enjoy ourselves by purchasing an Unlimited Quick Queue pass. It was so worth the money! We rode every ride in the park at least twice, but one ride required us to ride down a rapidly flowing river, which quenched us with water. It was incredible that my two-year-old was laughing as well. We rode the Infinity Falls ride four times in one day—BEST DAY EVER for FAMILY FUN in the Sun! The entire experience was epic, full of energizing emotions and, most importantly, lots of smiles. What made this ride so cool was that the whole family could experience it together, the motions were on point, and the water was the icing on the cake. It had been a while since I had that type of fun, and I will never forget it.
