We are excited to announce a new round of updates to the Boclips Library, including licensing details, new standards alignments and automatic embed capabilities. Our team continues to focus on updates that make the user experience on Boclips Library more efficient and intuitive - stay tuned for future updates!

 

Licensing Details

 

Starting soon, all users will be greeted with a brand-new Licensing Details section on video pages within Boclips Library. For those leveraging our API, fret not—these details are also available via our API as well.

 

This release marks a giant stride in enabling user empowerment by providing you and your team with comprehensive video details essential for your needs. This upgrade aims to communicate precise video information to meet your requirements.

 

What can you expect to see in this new section?

 

  • Maximum Licensing Term: Maximum Licensing Term specifies the maximum duration for which you have the rights to license the video. After that period, you would need to renew or re-license it if you wish to continue using it.
  • Territories with Distribution Restrictions: Territory defines the specific geographical area where the video's license is restricted or not applicable. 
  • Editing Restrictions: Editing Restrictions outline what you're allowed to do in terms of modifying the video.
  • Video-Specific Restrictions: Partnering with various content creators means unique restrictions. This section displays specific partner-set limitations, providing transparent access to content.

For additional details, please see the Boclips FAQs section explaining each detail area in-depth.

 

Additional Alignments

 

We are thrilled to introduce new content alignments that are devised to further enrich the educational experience. 

  • Florida's B.E.S.T. Standards: ELA Skills:

    • The Florida Standards for ELA emphasize critical thinking, analysis of texts, writing across different genres, research skills, and effective communication. They aim to prepare students to be college and career ready by the time they graduate high school.

  • New York State Next Generation Mathematics Standards:

    • These standards outline what students should know and be able to do at each grade level from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. They cover various mathematical domains such as counting and cardinality, operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations in base ten, measurement and data, geometry, and more.

  • Florida CPALMS Science:

    • These standards emphasize inquiry-based learning, scientific reasoning, and the application of knowledge in real-world contexts. They aim to foster a deeper understanding of scientific concepts and promote skills necessary for scientific inquiry and problem-solving.

Note: The familiar 'Sparks' tab in Boclips Library will soon be renamed to the 'Alignments' tab. This change isn't just about a new name – it's about enhancing clarity and ease of access to curriculum alignments within the platform.
