SocialSkip can be employed in real or experimental scenarios to generate user activity graphs of an online video, by analyzing users’ interactions with the system, such as play, pause, skip/scrub. The SocialSkip system employs a custom web-video player and a web-database to keep a record of basic user actions (play, pause, and skip).

SocialSkip is also integrated with Google Drive, which allows the addition of a questionnaire next to the video. This feature has been useful in video experiments for learning, which include quiz questions next to the video.

The main feature of SocialSkip is a video browser with custom player buttons that collects user interactions with the video to a data-base.
