How to Add Personal Clips

< Back to all topics

While ClassHook’s library has a plethora of clips that are easy to browse through, you may already have some favorite clips that you’ve bookmarked from various places on the Internet. You can store all your clips on ClassHook, regardless of their status in the ClassHook library, with Personal Clips for an easier way to manage all your teaching materials.

This article will explain what Personal Clips are, why and when you should use them, and how to create them.

What Are Personal Clips?

Personal Clips are videos found from anywhere on the internet that you can manage directly on ClassHook. You can add clips individually, upload them from your computer, or import an entire playlist from YouTube.

Personal Clips can be either private or public. You can share public Personal Clips with your students or anyone else, and they won’t need a ClassHook account to view them. Personal Clips that are private can be viewed only by you.

Personal Clips are available to all ClassHook educators. Both Basic ClassHook and Premium educator can add an unlimited amount of Personal Clips. However, Basic ClassHook users are limited to directly uploading up to 3 clips to ClassHook. Learn more on our Pricing page.

Why Use Personal Clips?

Personal Clips simplify the way in which you manage the videos you’ve saved for your lessons. Instead of visiting different websites to show videos to your class, you can save and watch videos from multiple sources in a single place alongside your favorite ClassHook clips.

If you have a video that isn’t on ClassHook, not only can you submit that video to the ClassHook library or request a clip, you can make it a Personal Clip so that it’s easy to access.

How to Use Personal Clips

Like all clips in the ClassHook library, you can use discussion features like Pause Prompts and Live Discussions with Personal Clips.
