YouTube Work Around
Why is YouTube blocked?
YouTube is blocked for several reasons. One reason is when students have free time and they are steadily streaming YouTube videos, it slows down our internet speeds. By blocking YouTube we have freed up bandwith for the rest of our users. Another reason is from parental concern. Students were viewing inappropriate content.
How do students view YouTube videos I assign for class?
One option is to send your video out within a SafeShare link.
