GG4L’s member schools will not need to manually create accounts to use SchoolTube anymore.

“SchoolTube offers safe and secure video authoring and publishing portals for schools,” commented Robert Iskander, GG4L CEO and Founder. “This aligns with our strategic goal to promote and empower safe digital learning environments.”
“More and more teachers are pairing their lessons with video, so that students can refer back to the material at their own pace.” said Carl Arizpe, Founder of SchoolTube. “Video use during Covid-19 closings expanded this trend and we don’t see it stopping. Our new integration with SchoolPassport and GG4L will make it easier for teachers to create, host and share their video lessons.”
