Netflix has always allowed teachers to screen documentaries in their classrooms. However, this isn’t possible with schools closed. So at their request, the streaming company has made a selection of documentary features and series available on the Netflix YouTube channel.
Each title also has educational resources available, which can be used by both students and teachers – and Netflix will also be doing Q&As with some of the creators behind these projects so that students can hear from them firsthand.
In a blog post, Netflix said: “We hope this will, in a small way, help teachers around the world.
The documentaries are currently available in English. Subtitles in more than a dozen languages will be available later this week.The titles available include Our Planet, Abstract, 13th, Chasing Coral and more.
