Google is Now Offering Youtube for Schools!

Interesting news coming out of Google/Youtube. They have now created a “Youtube for Schools.” From what I gather, it’s Youtube fed through a school’s network firewall that then allows for links to videos that Youtube had decided has educational content. This seems like a much-needed improvement over a school or district simply blocking all content found on Youtube. Administrators adding this service to their firewall clients can now have certain videos passed through it and then opened up for teachers and students to use in the classroom.

You can read additional information about the service here.  And, if you’re not at work right now being blocked by a firewall, you can peruse the Youtube EDU website here.

And here’s a video talking more about it:
