Our Educational Video Library
 

We're proud to introduce you to our new Educational Video Library (EVL).  It came FREE with our Lightspeed Internet Filter.  You may find it to be a useful teaching tool.

What is it?
Our K-12 Educational Video Library empowers you to safely share YouTube videos with your students.
 
Why?
"YouTube is rife with educationally-rich videos—but is also full of inappropriate content. The new Educational Video Library allows teachers to give their students access to valuable educational videos. With this feature, teacher approved videos can be viewed and shared—without the potentially dangerous and inappropriate peripheral content, such as comments and related links."  (source)

Also, as more and more of us submit videos to our EVL -- our EVL will become a rich source of digital information that anyone in our school community can enjoy from anywhere in the world.  (Note: Students and staff can access our EVL from school and from home.)
