July tends to be a slow time in education (summer holidays, we're looking at you). This past month, though, the team at Boclips was busy. We added several new content partners and instructional videos that courseware creators might use in the fall.
From English language learning to career training to the physics of popping a wheelie, our newly added content covers quite a lot of ground. Check out the previews of five videos below, all new to Boclips’ platform this month.
1. IELTS Speaking Band 9 Mumbai India - Smart Answers with Subtitles
