YouTube for Schools

Social Media – YouTube

YouTube announced the release of YouTube for schools on December 11, 2011, which will allow school children special access to 400,000 educational videos from YouTube EDU from inside their school network. The slogan of the new site is: Educate, engage, and inspire your students with video! Sign up for YouTube for Schools to bring the power of video to your classrooms for free.

This site is a resource for educators everywhere to learn how to use YouTube as an educational tool and will have no access to videos other than those related to education. The site allows teachers to customise and restrict what their students can see. School admins and teachers can log in and pick the educational videos from YouTube’s destination site called YouTube EDU. This site has around 400,000 educational videos. Once these videos will be moved to the school network all comments and related videos are disabled and search is limited to YouTube EDU videos.

YouTube’s Product Manager, Brian Truong, announced on The Official YouTube Blog on December 11, 2011:
