SchoolTube, the Safe Alternative to YouTube
Teachers across the US are uploading their own videos and linking their favorite YouTube videos* to SchoolTube so they can safely display these videos with their students. By sharing their videos using SchoolTube, teachers do not need to worry about random ‘recommended’ or ‘related’ videos showing up on their screens that are not appropriate for children. The SchoolTube system does not allow for comments below a video, which is often a source of frustration and inappropriate text and links. SchoolTube has been serving K-12 school communities since 2007 and is endorsed by many national education organizations. SchoolTube is COPPA and ADA-Compliant platform, 100% focused on K-12 for:
- Distance Learning
- Educational Lesson Videos & Content
- Staff Training
- School & District Communications
- Superintendent and Principal Messages
- Archiving & Sharing School Board Meeting Recordings
- Teachers Favorite YouTube Videos can be uploaded/shared on SchoolTube
SchoolTube is the Place for Safe YouTube Video Sharing
*Every SchoolTube account includes the ability to link and play publicly available YouTube videos. In doing so, the YouTube videos are not downloaded, but play within the SchoolTube page while removing YouTube suggested videos and comments. This process also eliminates the teacher’s need to share their personal YouTube browsing history. Ads originating from YouTube will still play and if your district restricts YouTube on student devices, this process too will be blocked. However, where YouTube is unblocked, it is a great way to share YouTube videos.
