About Us

Why is bo here?

We believe great video can spark imaginations and inspire students, whatever they’re studying, wherever they are. Just like Buddha found enlightenment when he sat beneath the bo tree.

What do we do?

boclips makes it easy for education providers to find, license and use video content from some of the largest and most respected content owners in the world.

How do we do this?

We’ve developed technology that scans thousands of hours of video content to find the best matches with topics taught in the classroom. These clips are then verified and refined by our panel of teachers to make sure they are accurate and relevant.

Where's the catch?

There’s no catch. With our content partners, we’ve designed a single rights and pricing model that recognises the specific requirements of education providers.

Help!

We’re learning too. boclips is a living creature, always changing and adapting, so if you have any ideas on what we do and how we do it, we’d love to hear from you.
