We’re starting off June strong with a new search filter to help you find awesome clips even faster. This feature was a direct response to your feedback, so keep the feedback coming!

Today, we’re excited to announce the release of the Subsearch filter! Subsearch allows you to further refine your search results with an additional word or phrase. Here’s an example: if you’ve entered a search for “Science,” you’ll see a lot of results. You may be looking for clips specifically on “Energy,” but browsing through all of those science clips will take more time than you can afford. With Subsearch, you can filter through all of those results and find exactly what you’re looking for. In this scenario, entering “Energy” in the Subsearch filter will display only the science clips pertaining to energy.

Entering the specific topic you’d like to teach (ex: “Energy”) in your initial search will display relevant results, just as it did before. However, oftentimes there are overlapping terms in different fields of study, and as a result you may be shown clips that aren’t quite what you’re after. In this situation, you can use the Subsearch filter to find only those clips within your particular field of study.

Subsearch works in conjunction with all of the other available filters, so with grade level, clip length, series, profanity, and now subsearch filters at your fingertips, finding the perfect clip for your lesson has never been easier.

We’d love to hear what you think about the Subsearch filter. Send us your thoughts and what else we should consider. We want to design the best experience for you, and we’ll need your help to do it.
