YouTube is the third most popular site on the Web, yet many school districts block it due to safety and security risks. To allow access to approved YouTube videos while maintaining network security and protecting students, more than 250 school districts are using the Educational Video Library from Lightspeed Systems Inc.

Part of Lightspeed Systems' Total Traffic Control network security software, the Educational Video Library enables educators to use YouTube videos for classroom instruction without any of the risks. Only approved YouTube videos are displayed through a portal on the local network. District administrators can designate teachers and staff to submit and/or review videos for classroom use. As part of the submission process, videos are categorized and tagged for easy searching.

For more information, contact Lightspeed Systems at 661-716-7600, or visit www.lightspeedsystems.com.
