A few weeks ago I introduced you to a new educational videos platform for kids called Kidobi. Kidobi promotes a safe environment where kids can chose from a selection of educational videos appropriate for their age and interests. My daughter loves animals so when I set up her profile I added this as an interest and she is able to find videos that feature animals. My last post was how to create playlists for your children and remove and add videos to it. Today I wanted to take a different approach and show you each piece of a video and how you can participate to make Kidobi a unique experience.
When you login into your account the front page will give you several options from Free, Premium, and Featured videos.
Lets select a featured series, Koki the Gardner. Note this is a locked feature which means you will need a Premium membership to view this video. At the time of this article the price for this membership is $4/month. Once you select the video you will note their are several features such as the ability to add to playlist, rate & comment, favorite, or share. You can share a video you like through Facebook or email.
Under the video you will find a short description of the video. This will help decide whether this is a good video for your child, or help your child decide (if they can read) if it sounds like something they are interested in watching.
To the right of the video there are several factors to help you decide if this video is appropriate for you child. You will find the age of the child the video will appeal too. In addition their will be a Kidobi rating of the video.
There are two ares for rating. Your child can rate the video based on their opinions of the video as well as a parent rating. The parent rating is a great tool because you can see what other parents thought about the videos educational value and the video as a whole.
In addition to the above there will also be a feature letting you know what the educational value of the video. This will let you know what skills the video will cover.
As a parent, if you utilize all these features your child’s experience on Kidobi will be unique, fun, and interesting. By taking part and rating videos as a parent you will be helping other parents and creating a stronger platform for not just your child but everyone’s child. If you encourage your child to rate the video then other children will benefit from that rating.
Kidobi is also available as an app for both the iPad and Android devices in iTunes and Google Play.
