The story behind Boclips

Since 2014, Boclips has been transforming the way video is used in the classroom by making it easier, smarter, and safer to find and use videos for educational purposes.

The origins of Boclips

During his time working in media, David Bainbridge noticed a discrepancy between the slick videos he was putting on television and the dry, dated materials his children were bringing home from school every day. While books and blackboards were evolving into tablets, computers, and interactive whiteboards, the actual content didn't seem to have changed much since his days in school.
David became determined to change that. He founded Boclips in 2014 to remove barriers between the previously siloed industries of video production and education publishing. His mission from the start was to help education providers harness the power of video to help students learn by bringing together the world’s best educational videos on a single platform.

Boclips for Publishers

For more students to access quality educational video in the classroom, the process of procuring video for courseware first had to be radically simplified. By aggregating some of the biggest names in video production on a simple platform, Boclips eliminated the need to source content from multiple producers, offering a single procurement point for courseware developers to find, license, and use video in their online learning platforms.

Today, Boclips for Publishers features world-class educational video from 120+ globally recognized content providers. It's used by educational publishers, ministries of education, and cutting-edge digital courseware designers around the world to enhance their online learning systems.

Boclips For Teachers

Recognizing teachers’ demand for more educational video—as well as the frustrations, risks, and challenges they face when finding and using digital content—the company is launching Boclips for Teachers, a streaming video-on-demand platform just for teachers.

Free from commercial distractions and firewall restrictions, Boclips for Teachers allows teachers the peace of mind to stream videos without inadvertently exposing students to ads, inappropriate content, or security threats. Its teacher-friendly interface makes it easy and fast for teachers to search for the videos they need to bring the real world into the classroom.
