What Our Customers Have To Say

Week One was amazing. We went to the Amazon Rainforest, and students are now working on making their “save the rainforest” posters.
I introduced your site to my colleagues, and I think many will be joining as well. Our head of school has agreed to pay for all of our subscriptions. 
Thank you for making our jobs easier. It’s so nice to have all (appropriate) videos in one place with activity ideas to add to the virtual field trip experience. I had been spending countless hours creating my own trips, and this is just so much better. 
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I took my students on a Virtual Trip to the Amazon today!  They told me this field trip was much better than the one we went on from Discovery Education!!!

Debra L.

3rd Grade Teacher, Maryland

“I just want to let you know how much of a blessing this site has been to me and to my students during this pandemic.  The theme in my classroom is “travel.” We have been able to continue with this theme by having weekly field trips. It is the highlight of everyone’s week. This was by far one of the best purchases I made this year.”

Stacy P.

3rd Grade Teacher, North Carolina

“My 6th grade students are always excited to learn through reading and the Virtual Field Trips site. The videos are incredibly engaging and informative. The ease of use is very appreciated as a teacher pressed for time.”

Kryssie

6th Grade Teacher, Arizona

“I use the Virtual Field Trips site and the students LOVE it. Learning by virtually experiencing has been highly successful for my students. A few of our favorites are the Amazon, Coral Reefs, African Safari, and Rome.”

Kryssie

6th Grade Teacher, Arizona

Thank you very, very much for including your site for free during distance learning. You made the virtual field trips easy for both teachers and children to use. All I had to do was copy the link into my Seesaw activity and my kiddos just tapped on the link and learned about places, people, and things. The DC Tour fit in nicely with their weekly reading selection on U.S. symbols. 

Linda P.

2nd Grade Teacher, Virginia

“You have brightened my day, as I have looked extensively for high quality virtual trips, and your site is clearly one of the best I’ve found!”

Karen M.

5th Grade Teacher, Minnesota

“I teach 9th graders who are 2 to 3 years behind in their reading and writing.  They are also socioeconomically disadvantaged with not many experiences to write about.  I thought this would give them something to write about as well as be educational and enjoyable.  We do one each Monday and they love them!  They ask, “Where are we going today?”

Lisa

9th Grade Teacher, Texas

“Your videos and accompanying lesson ideas are very helpful and high quality.”

Laurel L.

8th Grade Teacher, New Mexico

“I teach grades K-3 Science, Social Studies, Government, Geography, and Economics.  I have found Virtual Field Trips videos a valuable piece in many areas.  I use an interactive white board on a daily basis and have been able to link the videos into the flip charts making access to them very easy during the lesson.  I look forward to more of these quality videos.”

Scott S.

Exploration Teacher, Minnesota

“I really appreciate the value of this site.  My students are very much enjoying it.  Thank you!”

Suzanne

3rd Grade Teacher, Montana

My students love these virtual field trips and honestly can’t get enough of them.  They ignite awesome writing.

Mari

1st Grade Teacher, Teacher Librarian, Toronto

El Limonar International School in Murcia, Spain absolutely loved Virtual Field Trips when we were given the opportunity to use it in June. There are so many topics included in their library that we study in the Primary School that it is well worth buying into and the children were mesmerized from the moment they began watching. The images were bright and colourful while the commentaries very informative and clear, leading to a lot of discussion afterwards. I definitely recommend it.

Catherine S.

4th Grade Teacher, Spain

I really want to thank Virtual Field Trips for allowing full access during the hardest time of education when we had to switch to remote so suddenly. It was super exciting for the students to tour around the world with just a click! They loved all the videos and naturally the assignments that followed. I really appreciate the support! Thank you thank you thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions

WHERE ARE THE QUIZZES?

Quizzes are at the bottom of the Full Video page.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page to the Learning Resources section and you’ll see the quiz file(s).

CAN I SHARE VIDEO LINKS WITH MY STUDENTS?

Yes. As a subscriber, you will find all of your video links on your Account page. You won’t be able to successfully share the URL’s from the video pages on the website. Those URL’s will end up showing an error message because they are behind the login wall.

WHAT MAKES OUR VIDEOS DIFFERENT?

Our videos are researched, written, and produced by educators for educators.  Teachers and instructional professionals are responsible for the production of each video and quiz.

Our videos are also different because they are closely aligned with the curriculum.  In particular the social studies, geography, life science, and ancient civilization curriculums.

Each video is professionally narrated by voice actors.  We hope you’ll agree that not many other “educational” videos can say the same.

ARE SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR A SCHOOL YEAR OR A CALENDAR YEAR?

Subscriptions run for a calendar year.  So, if someone subscribes on November 1st then the subscription runs until October 31st of the next year. They are not related to the school year.

WHAT DO I GET WITH MY SUBSCRIPTION?

Each subscription allows for unlimited video viewing and use of the quizzes.  In the case of an individual video subscription, that means unlimited viewing of the single video. A Teacher + Classroom subscription allows unlimited access to all videos on the website, as does a Schoolwide site license.

DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER RESOURCES?

Each subscription allows for unlimited video viewing and use of the quizzes.  In the case of an individual video subscription, that means unlimited viewing of the single video. A Teacher + Classroom subscription allows unlimited access to all videos on the website, as does a Schoolwide site license.

WHAT DOES TEACHER + CLASSROOM MEAN?

A Teacher + Classroom subscription means that the videos and video links can be shared by a teacher with all her/his students.

DO I NEED ANY SPECIAL SOFTWARE OR TECHNOLOGY TO WATCH YOUR VIDEOS?

All you need is a device and an internet connection together with the video links, or login information (user name and password).  The faster the internet connection, the better.

HOW CAN MY STUDENTS ACCESS THE VIDEOS?

Teachers share their video links with their students.  They can be copied into other platforms like Google Classroom.

ARE YOUR VIDEOS CLOSED CAPTIONED?

At this moment they are not closed-captioned. We do offer to provide transcripts of a video if that can be of help.  It is our intention to have all of our videos closed-captioned as soon as we can, since we appreciate how important this is.

CAN I DOWNLOAD THE VIDEOS?

No, you cannot.  The videos are our copyrighted content. Ours is a subscription-based website, which means you have unlimited access as long as the subscription is active.
