Posted by rosiemacalpine on February 11, 2010

Yesterday, YouTube announced a new safety mode which restricts search results, disables comments and hides inappropriate related videos.

The video below gives you some more information.

 

If your school currently bans staff access to YouTube, let them know about these new safety features as there is so much great content that you can show on your board. Inappropriate comments are my biggest bugbear on YouTube, so being able to hide them will be a big advantage.
