Profanity Features on ClassHook

< Back to all topics

Want to start using popular shows and movies in your lessons, but always worry about appropriate language for the classroom? ClassHook has recognized this concern for educators and we make it a point to eliminate as much profanity as we can in our clips. For the few videos that do have profanity, we label it clearly so you make the decision to include it in your next lesson. We also offer tools to help you avoid profanity while watching clips that contain it.

Here’s how you can identify these clips:

Profanity Badge

In the clips that have profanity, there is a clear, red banner underneath the video thumbnail that indicates there is language that educators should pay attention to in the clip. The bold red color is prominent and easy to identify, so when scrolling through clips, you can easily spot the profanity banner.

Profanity Window and Time

When you navigate to a clip that has profanity, there is a dedicated section that warns you about the profanity. It mentions exactly where the profanity is in the clip and what is said (if you hover over it).

Video Player

ClassHook is partnered with YouTube Education, so it hides advertisements and prevents suggested videos from showing when the video is paused or has finished playing. Students and teachers alike can safely watch videos and stay on ClassHook, where the videos are guaranteed to be educational and safe.

Automatic Profanity Skipping

With this feature, you are able to automatically skip profanity that is present in videos while it is playing. This means you can watch a video with your class that contains profanity, but you and your students will not hear it. Read more about Automatic Profanity Skipping here.

By making these features available, our goal is to empower parents, educators, and students to watch educational videos without being exposed to inappropriate content. The profanity features on ClassHook help you show relevant media without worrying about inappropriate language.
