Sharing links to resources & activities

Every TeachVid resource page has a share button (at the top-right of the resource image preview), which allows users to share a link to that particular resource page via Facebook or Twitter (as shown in the image above).

YouTube Channel page on TeachVid

We recently added a YouTube Channel feature on TeachVid.

If you open any resource page on TeachVid – this one, for example – and you scroll down to below the “Printables” and the “Transcript” section, you’ll see a YouTube Info section.

This section is automatically generated and shows:

  • a Video URL, linking to the video on YouTube.
  • a “More from this channel” button.
  • a button to access the YouTube Channel on YouTube.

Example classroom

Classrooms on TeachVid are set up by teachers, and users normally need to be sent an invitation to join these classrooms along with a password.

But we’ve now added an example classroom that anyone can visit.

The example classroom allows you to see what a classroom looks like – and what assignments look like – from a student’s perspective. (The only difference here is that none of the assignments have a due date.)
