About our videos

Where can I find your videos?
The videos are hosted on YouTube and available to stream online via our student website
We recommend using our student site instead of linking directly to YouTube so that you have static links. Unfortunately the links change on YouTube when a video is updated. They never change on our student site.

Our videos are also available on the ClickView platform for Clickview subscribing schools.

How should I use your vidoes?
With our pedagogy we recommend that your students watch specific Craig ‘n’ Dave videos at certain points in the course to prepare them for the next part. Usually this would be before a lesson for homework in preparation for the next lesson. To get the most out of the videos we suggest students use the Cornell method of note-taking using our Cornell notebooks.

Do your videos cover the entire course in enough detail?
Yes. You could completely remove the chalk-and-talk aspect of your lesson if you wanted to! Unlike other videos, we cover every bullet points of an examination board specification. They are not generic videos, they are produced for very specific course requirements. Of course in-class activities should be used to supplement them, and we provide plenty of these too in a subscription to our premium resources.

Do I need to show your videos to my students in the classroom? 
If you’re following our flipped classroom approach, no – the videos are intended to be viewed by students as homework tasks outside of school hours. Alternatively, if you are using our resources as part of a more traditional approach to teaching, you may want to show our videos to your students in the classroom.  

I cannot access YouTube at my school – can I download the videos from your website? 
No. Craig'n'Dave own the copyright to the videos and they cannot be downloaded or ripped from YouTube.

Can I host your videos on Microsoft Stream or another video sharing platform for my class?
No. We do not permit hosting our videos on other platforms. When viewing them on YouTube we can benefit from Google algorithms and "impressions". We lose valuable data if students access them from elsewhere. To compensate for that we also sell them on a USB drive, but they can only be hosted on your school internal learning platform or a private shared network drive. Note access to view our videos must always be behind a login if you are not accessing them through our YouTube channel.

Due to file size limits, we are not able to host local copies of the videos on our website. However, we appreciate that some school  administrators do not permit access to YouTube – that is why local copies of our videos on USB drives are available to purchase through our online shop

How much do the USB drives cost? 
USB drives for our GCSE courses are £49. A level courses are £79. If you need local copies of videos for both a GCSE and an A Level course, you can purchase a bundle for the discounted price of £109. 

Purchasing a USB drive also includes a lifetime, site-wide licence to host the videos included on your intranet or internal learning platform, providing access is password-protected and only available to students at your school (not across a multi-academy trust). It does not grant you a free upgrade when new videos are released.

Why do I have to pay for something that is available elsewhere for free? 
Our videos on YouTube are not included in a Craig'n'Dave membership. They are provided free of charge through the YouTube platform.

When viewing them on YouTube we can benefit from Google algorithms promoting our resources and content, plus the use of cards and end-screens to make students and teachers aware of our other products. Hosting the videos locally by purchasing them on a USB drive means we lose this valuable data.

So, in essence, by purchasing our videos on a USB drive, you are paying for two things: 
● A lifetime, site-wide licence to host our videos locally on your password-protected intranet or internal learning platform.
● The loss of valuable analytics data and marketing.
