YouTube Coming To Your School Soon
An interesting article here regarding the use of YouTube in schools Schools to spend thousands to access YouTube
Yes YouTube has its academic merits but surely there has to be a cheaper alternative, considering this proposed solution is going to costing between £2,500 and £10,000 a year per school :eek:
Details of the BLOXX solution can be found more.
Have had a quick read through the brochure and unless I have missed something it does seem to do much automated content filtering, looks like it relies on content being submitted by teachers for approval before it can be viewed.
Interesting to hear what others here think and to see how many schools and authorities are looking at this solution.
We use BLOXX as our web filter have just emailed them to see if our LEA has approached them regarding the unit and to see if I can have one to trial :D
