Are Time for Geography videos a reliable resource for teaching and learning?

All Time for Geography videos are developed by our team of geographers, in collaboration with world-leading subject experts. Many of our videos hold awards recognising their contribution to geographical education, as assessed by panels of teachers and educational professionals. However, as critical thinkers, we encourage you to assess the quality of Time for Geography videos critically for yourself.

How is Time for Geography funded?

Time for Geography is made possible through partnerships with leading organisations from across the geography-geoscience community.

Can I download Time for Geography videos?

The support that we receive to make Time for Geography free and open-access is tied to the anonymised online video viewing traffic that we are able to report back to our partner organisations. Downloaded videos are unhelpful as they cannot tell us how often they are being used. For this reason, we have not made the videos available for download.

If you have reasons for needing to download a video, please let us know by emailing [email protected], and it may be something we can look into.

How can I watch Time for Geography videos?

All Time for Geography videos are freely available (open-access) via the Time for Geography project website.

Our videos are not based on a specific exam board specification, but have been developed taking the different exam boards into consideration. Content and question types do vary from one exam board to the next, so it is important to check the specification for your particular exam board.

Mobile network costs.

We recommend that you stream videos when connected to Wi-Fi. You can also stream videos when connected to 3G/4G/5G, but please remember your mobile operator may charge for the data you use on their network. If you’re unsure how much your data costs or what your data allowance is, please contact your mobile network operator. Mobile network operators calculate data usage by the megabyte (MB) and you may have a monthly data usage allowance.

My video has a poor resolution. What should I do?

Time for Geography video streaming adapts the resolution of the video depending on the speed of your internet connection. You can increase the resolution by clicking on the HD pop-up menu at the bottom of the video player. However, if your connection speed is slow, the video may pause to buffer. If this happens, try reducing the resolution again.
