YouTube is one of my favorite channels when it comes to browsing educational videos. However, there are some major flaws with using YouTube for educational purposes, in the classroom and beyond. One flaw is that students can easily end up watching videos that they have no business seeing in the school setting or anywhere for that matter. Also, the videos on Youtube are not very well organized, so you are left carrying out many searches, thus wasting time.

How Are Videos Added?
Adding videos to the site is very simple. You simply click on the add video link when you have logged in and follow the directions provided. You will be asked to enter information about the video source, so it is a good idea to have information about the video that you are adding. As an alternative to simply linking videos found elsewhere, your own videos can be uploaded when you are granted permission to do so.
