    At Boclips, we are on the path to creating something impactful for the world of education. Open video sites have many risks for students and teachers. However children are consuming more and more video. We are building a safe place for teachers to easily discover and share awe-inspiring video with students in class. We have the world’s largest collection of video from the most trusted creators around the world, helping to bring concepts to life in the classroom. Ted Talks, Youtube EDU, Crash Course, Minute Physics, Sci Show to name a few, giving teachers a way to find trusted, teacher-curated content and giving students a way to get smarter with video.
