Access to Video Content Just Got Easier with ClassLink!

We all know that video content is a great way to vary the way in which students experience information. Using video content from the subscription databases provided by Grant Wood Area Education Agency offers several advantages: no ads, no clickbait, citations are available, and they are easily shared as hyperlinks in lessons or learning ClassLink Video.pngmanagement systems such as Google Classroom.

Now by logging in to Classlink with their school email account or scanning their Classlink QuickCard, students will see a page with icons for all of the GWAEA Online Resources.

Once logged in, a simple click will immediately open the door to all of the videos in Learn 360AEA Digital Library, American History Video, and TumbleBooks (to name a few). This single-sign on option is a game changer for in-person and remote learning, when not in the classroom with a teacher readily available for password assistance. Additionally, having one username and password for all of these resources removes a barrier for many students and makes accessing quality content much faster.

Examples of videos from these online resources are below. To learn more about using Classlink to get to all of these great videos, see the Classlink section.
