Frequently Asked Questions on using YouTube for Education
What is YouTube For Schools
YouTube for Schools gives you a way to access educational videos from inside your school network. YouTube for Schools gives schools the ability to access a broad set of educational videos on YouTube EDU and to select the specific videos that are accessible from within your school network.
YouTube EDU is a sub-section of YouTube that contains high-quality educational content. YouTube for Schools is a network setting that, when implemented, allows your school to access the educational content on YouTube EDU while limiting access to non-educational content on YouTube.com. YouTube.com/Teachers is a how-to site that shows you how to use YouTube in the classroom. All filtering and approval is done by YouTube and Google, not your schools administration staff.
