Note: This is a ClassHook Premium feature

At ClassHook, we help educators find the perfect clip by classifying clips by age level, subject, and standards. Sometimes, you may be searching for videos a bit differently. Whether you’re trying to draw parallels or use foils, In-Video Search is an incredibly useful tool to make your searching easier and your lessons more engaging.

What is In-Video Search?

In-Video Search takes the clip finding experience to the next level by using the latest in machine learning and artificial intelligence to search within videos. With In-Video Search, ClassHook now understands the contents of its video clips, so if you want to find a video containing a shoe, you can do that. Want to find clips containing dessert? Just search for “dessert.” It’s that simple.
