Teachers gain access to YouTube
December 23, 2009
Teachers are granted permission to access to YouTube videos at school. In October, the Fremont board of education meeting addressed the issue of unblocking YouTube. The board postponed their decision until members got further information about possible internet filters and whether the district had the technological ability to control access to YouTube. When they learned how the internet could be filtered through password protection, the board decided to give teachers password-protected access to YouTube. Teachers can now show educational videos without the hassle of working around the district’s security system.
