Blocked for students but not teachers.
I personally think it can be a useful tool, but (needless to say) the teachers never employ suitable caution. I've seen them search for a topic whilst projecting their screen to the Smartboard :eek: and fail to notice that in the comments below the Martin Luther King clip they were showing were a bunch of CAPITALIZED SWEAR WORDS :rolleyes:.
Tell them that you will only approve certain videos on a case by case basis and will only unblock them if they are needed for the lesson, or tell them to send you a link to the video and you will download it and place it on the network for them.

Fair enough I suppose.
Caused a lot of anger between staff as they loved it for resources - but we just told them to prepare more and (if youtube offers the download link under a video) download it and bring it in.
