TeachVid is a platform that allows users to generate and access interactive learning content based on short YouTube videos for use in class or for independent learning.
Resources are available for multiple languages. Resources are listed by video language, as well as by student language, category and level, so it's easy to find a resource to suit your needs.
Most resources are based on a video transcript. To create a resource you can type or paste in the transcript or use our YouTube caption search to look for automatically generated captions.
In many cases the transcript is also available in translation, allowing users to switch languages and compare. The transcript forms the basis of most of the interactive activities.
Each TeachVid transcript-based resource contains multiple activities whose focus is on filling gaps, keying in letters, re-ordering chunks of text, etc. Transcript-based activities are carried out caption by caption.
TeachVid activities are linked to captions (as defined by the resource creator) and video playback. Captions are often available in translation, and in Learn Mode students can switch between captions and compare.
Captions may be divided into chunks, which are clickable in Learn Mode, providing chunk-level translations and notes for learners. Some reconstruction activities are based on these teacher-defined language chunks.
As well as transcript-based activities, TeachVid also allows you to create an interactive multi-choice quiz based on any YouTube video. (Resources can be transcript-based, quiz-based or a combination of the two.)
Each TeachVid resource also provides access to printable pdf transcripts, translations (where provided) and a variety of worksheets, many of which are based on similar functionality to the interactive activities.
Teachers can assign activities and assessments for their students to complete by creating classrooms. Teachers can view and download data regarding activities completed, scores, time taken, etc.
Assignments can consist of resource previews, practice activities and assessments. A passmark can be set for all assignment activities, and teachers can opt between several view modes for each activity.
View modes determine how students must complete an assignment activity: as a dictation, as a translation, as dictation / translation combined, or as a text reconstruction task with no additional support.
