YouTube for Education, also known as ‘YouTube for Schools’ gives you a new way to access educational videos. It gives schools the ability to reach a broad set of educational videos on YouTube EDU and to select the specific videos that to be made accessible from within their school networks.
Through YouTube for Schools, teachers can choose from hundreds and thousands of videos from YouTube EDU, developed with more than 600 partners including the Smithsonian, PBS, Stanford University, TED, Numberphile, Khan Academy and Steve Spangler Science. All a school has to do is sign up for this so that YouTube will block all the inappropriate videos for students according to their levels.
YouTube EDU consists of two sections, “YouTube.com/Teachers” and “YouTube for Schools”. “YouTube.com/Teachers” educates teachers on how to make best use of YouTube within the classroom. On the other hand, “YouTube for Schools” is a network setting, which redirects the video traffic, making it possible for schools that block YouTube to unblock and allow access to YouTube EDU (Youtube.com/education). The teachers and administrators decide what videos may be made available to the students, making a safe and a controlled environment for students.
It is very straight forward to implement this with a Cyberoam NG appliance. We are able to aid any school with making sure they can reach the extensive resources available with YouTube for Education and make sure that all other YouTube content is blocked.
