How do members use the Streaming Plan?
Using our Streaming plan, you can display the videos from our website, full screen, with or without captions. Whether it’s 1:1 instruction, using a projector, or screen sharing tools, this option makes our website your personal video resource. All videos come with lesson plans that include discussion questions, quiz questions, and more.
If you need to download or embed the video files in addition to streaming the videos, consider the Full Access plan.
Educating employees, customers, entire organizations
Individual trainers and educators use the streaming plan to
Our Full Access plans are the best option for organizations and learning resources. They provide for downloading and embedding the videos so they can be used in presentations and shared on platforms like intranets, learning portals, learning management systems, and more.
Educating yourself or your family
We recommend our Streaming plan for personal and home-school learning. It’s monthly and comes with no long term commitments.
For what age groups are your videos?
As a general rule, middle school age and up. Our videos are appropriate for any age and are used by Fortune 500 companies, universities, community colleges, and schools around the world.
There are plenty of video options. How are Common Craft videos different?
Our videos are explanations in the true sense of the word. Our goal is clarity and understanding of a concept. Unlike how-to videos or tutorials, our short animated videos are focused on big ideas and context. We answer questions like “why should I care about this?” and “why does this matter?” This is a skill we’ve honed since 2007 that requires a great deal of creativity.
Are your videos available with captions?
Yes. Videos in the library come with an open-captioned version in English.
How often do you publish new videos?
We make each video from scratch and typically publish about ten new videos a year.
Do you provide transcripts for videos?
Yes. Under each video in our library, there is a link “More Info + Transcript” that reveals the transcript and major points covered in the video.
What are Lesson Plans?
Lesson Plans are downloadable documents designed to help teachers use our videos in the classroom. Each lesson plan includes learning objectives, discussion questions, Q and A and further reading.
What are Video Packs?
Video packs make it easier to use the videos in our library. Instead of navigating from video to video in the library, the packs bring related videos together and display them on a single page.
Can I make a suggestion for a future title?
Feel free to contact us with any ideas you have. We provide a place for Common Craft members to suggest and vote on video titles. Many videos in our library have come from requests from our members.
Can I download or embed the videos?
No. If you would like to download or embed the files, please consider our Full Access plans. Compare plans.
