With our recent release of YouTube for Educators, schools can continue to enforce safe YouTube for their students but also give teachers the ability to approve individual videos or entire channels for quick, easy access to content needed for instruction.
The best thing about Securly’s approach to YouTube filtering can be summed up in one word:
We start off with default block, selective allow (YouTube for EDU / Safe Mode) and then loosen up via controlled approval of channels and videos. There is a clear use case for each action (by admin or by teacher).
The result: at the end of the day, IT admins can sum up the district’s YouTube policy in two sentences: “We start off with YouTube EDU. Here is a list of channels and videos we whitelist that fall outside YouTube EDU.”
