    Youtube Educational Video option - about time too!

    The title says it all really... I wonder how many filters will let it through though! @tom_newton will undoubtedly have done his homework on this one already!

    looks nice but would this still be accessable if you were blocking the youtube domain as it's on the same.

    Looking at it just been trying to get it to work locally using fildder but not got it to work yet. However as I read it idea is that unblock Youtube and any request to youtube will get redirect to education site (unless you logged into account that is allowed full access)as you alter http header with a custom code for your school/LA etc.

    You can whitelist videos on your admin youtube account, and whitelist other accounts, but you can't a) say all google apps users in group x are whitelisted, or b) let other accounts whitelist videos.

    Decent start, but needs some refinement

    You'd have thought someone in Youtube would have evolved sufficiently (and I have chosen my vocabulary carefully there) to work out that a different URL would make life much simpler for schools. As it is, I can see many schools not bothering!
