What is Time for Geography?

We are a team of teachers, academics and examiners with a passion for geography. Our aim is to develop high quality, affordable and stimulating learning and revision videos, available to all Geography students and teachers.

What am I buying when I pay for a video?

You are buying a streaming licence for that video. The licence is valid until the summer of the following academic year. For example, if you bought the licence in September 2016 it would be valid until 1 July 2018. This means that a GCSE student purchasing a licence in Year-10 will be able to stream that video until the end of their GCSE course and examinations in Year-11. A student will only have to purchase the licence once for the typical two year GCSE course.
As the videos are streamed, we are able to continually update, enhance and improve them. You are always watching the latest version of each video.

How many times can I watch the video?

As many times as you like while the licence is valid.

On what devices can I watch a video?

On smart phones, tablets and computers. You can also stream from your browser onto a TV through Apple TV or Chromecast.

How are my payments handled?

Our payment provider is PayPal, the most popular online payment service, which provides a safe and secure means of purchasing from Time for Geography. PayPal does not share your financial details with Time for Geography. When paying for a licence you can choose to pay using a debit card, credit card, or your PayPal account if you have one. By creating a PayPal account, you can store your details for future purchases. These details are held securely by PayPal and can be used in future using your PayPal username and password.

Can I share my license with someone else?

No. This is because each licence is unique to the account holder and you can only log into your account from one device at a time. In order to keep your account secure, you should not share your login details with other users. For this reason, if we notice your login details being used in a suspicious way, we will get in touch and ask you to change your password. 

Which web browsers are supported?

We support Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer. Whichever browser you prefer, please use the most up-to-date version available to ensure that everything on the site works smoothly. Please make sure cookies and JavaScript are not disabled on your browser.

Mobile and 3G / 4G network costs.

We recommend that you stream videos when connected to Wi-Fi. You can also stream videos when connected to 3G/4G, but please remember your mobile operator may charge for the data you use on their network. If you’re unsure how much 3G/4G 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 uses the Vimeo video streaming, which 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.
