Watch And Show Videos Without Distractions With Free Tool Watchkin

Online teaching is a great way to keep your class interested in the subject. Using different techniques of teaching always makes learning more interesting and fun.

Showing videos in class is one of the ways adopted by teachers for better teaching and better understanding of the students. But the problem arises when showing videos online in the class gets disturbing. The unnecessary ads, recommendation panels, comments, related videos and thumbnails gets in the way of teaching making students curious to know things they need not know. YouTube is the most common platform used by the teachers to educate via video learning. YouTube users face these problems as well. Teaching in the class becomes disturbing due to all these problems. The problem is not only restricted to disturbance but also adds to the curiosity of students about things like profanity, nudity or suggestive material, explicit drug or alcohol use, graphic violence etc.. towards which they need no inclination. This curiosity can lead students to take actions and learn things, which can be harmful to their knowledge and also leaves a bad impact on them.  

This problem can be solved through Watchkin. It is a site devoted to letting people have more control over their YouTube viewing experience.

The platform Cleans-up the video page so you only have to see the video, and not all the surrounding text and images, comments and ads. The idea is to make a safe environment for families/classes to watch videos. It provides a more responsible viewing experience by removing all the unnecessary clutter. Also, you can share videos with friends in a clean "watchkinized" format, with the security of knowing that they will not be framed with advertisements or other distracting or potentially offensive videos on their screens.

It also provides a Watchkin Smart Mode Filtering. If you see a normal Watchkin page with words like "We're sorry, but the requested video cannot be shown," this is due to Watchkin's Smart Mode Filtering. It may be due to text-based filtering or to multiple users agreeing that the video is not appropriate for families. If you think it is being blocked in error, you can contact watchkin operator.

Watchkin is also great for people that want to be able to view their video without the lure of "just one more." Watch your video and move on with your day. But in case you have time to spare and are ready for a round of videos, you can always use the search bar to find more.

Watchkin enables you to watch YouTube videos in a healthy classroom environment without any distractions or disturbances. No unnecessary ads, recommendation panels, comments, related videos and thumbnails gets in the way of teaching, creating problem for the teachers but provides a safer viewing environment.

Teachers can show videos in the class or post them on the class website without have to worry about what else will be there on the video page when student views it. It provides a kids-safe experience free of cost. 

The website is free to use. All you have to do is copy the URL of the YouTube video that you have to view and paste it in the watchkin’s search bar to view a cleaned up version of the video.

You can also watch your saved playlist. Just go to your YouTube account and click on the playlist you want to watch, and the Auto-Redirect script will automatically take you to the Watchkin page, or you can press the Watchkinize bookmarklet button to get there. It’s a great platform for all those who want to provide and have a distraction free and clean video viewing experience.
