New Feature: Playlists!

This past week, we introduced playlists to ClassHook. There is a similar feature on video hosting sites such as YouTube, so you will already be familiar with using them on ClassHook. You can get started on building your playlists right away.

Why use playlists on ClassHook?

Playlists allow you to group together clips for easy access and sharing. For example, you might want to group together clips that teach an entire Physics topic, or you might want to put funny clips together to better cope with less exciting lessons in the future. Playlists help you keep all those great clips organized in your own way!

Why use ClassHook playlists over YouTube playlists?

You can certainly use playlists on YouTube if you would like, but you would miss out on the valuable information that ClassHook provides, such as the appropriate age range, the relevant start/end times of clip segment, and more. Also, using playlists on ClassHook allows you to group together videos from multiple sources, not just YouTube! ClassHook’s library currently contains clips from sources such as YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, and Hulu.

How do I get started with playlists?

Sign in to your ClassHook profile. You will see a new section on your profile titled “Playlists.”

You can also add and remove individual clips to one or more playlists. When viewing a clip on ClassHook, you will notice a new button on the page titled “Add to.”

Since this clip is already in my “Favorites” playlist, the checkbox is checked. If I uncheck it, as expected it will remove the clip from that playlist. I only have one playlist at the moment, but all of your playlists will be listed in the box.

We are excited to bring you playlists and hope they will help you organize all of the clips that you find on ClassHook! How are you using playlists? Let us know in the comments, or send us a message!
