YouTube Rolls Out School-friendly Video Site

YouTube has been an educational resource with tremendous potential that teachers have been wanting to tap into for years. School bans and content concerns have gotten in the way… until now.

With YouTube for Schools, school can block the main YouTube while giving teachers and students access to educational videos for free.

The video site has created a new education section called YouTube EDU that allows schools to use educational videos from the world’s largest video sharing platform without opening the door to inappropriate or time-wasting content.

Schools can also add their own videos to their channel, customize their video playlists and keep their student video uploads private. YouTube Teachers lets you search by grade level and subject matter.

Even if your school didn’t block YouTube before, this seems to make using the site to teach easier and less stressful for teachers (at least in theory).
