edu-clippereduClipper is born out of the educational need for teachers and students to have a better platform to explore, share, and contribute resources and materials to help enhance teaching and learning of both a formal and personal nature.

Founded by an educator and educational technologist, Adam Bellow, eduClipper aims to make it simple to help students and educators save time, build personal learning networks, and begin to shift the culture of assessment to be more holistic and include the wonderfully amazing work that students and teachers are creating in the classroom.

eduClipper has been built with special consideration for teachers, students, and schools, and is always open to ways that we can work to improve.

Create clips and organize them into clipboards that show off the great work you can do or resources others can learn from.

Using eduClipper’s groups feature, teachers can more easily differentiate instruction and send resources to a particular group of colleagues or students while providing others with different resources.

Groups of learners can also collaborate on eduClipboards together to create authentic groupwork or allow user-interest or need-based collaborations.

eduClipper makes it easy for teachers to create virtual classes for their students. These classes allow teachers to provide assignments, create differentiated groups, and so much more.

eduClipper gives teachers lots of controls and options to make the platform open and safe for students at the same time.

eduClipper allows teachers to create dynamic assignments using providing their students with eduClips to serve as a reference or resource. Students then create new work, attach it to the assignment and the teacher is notified and can provide valid feedback to them by recording a video or audio clip, presenting them with a badge, written feedback, or a plain old grade.

Being part of a class automatically creates a class portfolio through which teachers can create assignments for students and students can track their work throughout the year. But we don’t think just storing work is all that helpful, we encourage our users to share the best work they have done as part of a portfolio that can be open to feedback from their peers or the world.
