Why? Can’t someone just make a tool to make our lives easier as teachers? The answer is YES! Have you seen Safeshare.tv? Simple cut and paste your favorite video link into the service and SafeShare.tv will help you in a variety of ways.
Their mission is to provide a safe environment, where YouTube and Vimeo videos can be seen without any distraction. In order to do that, they have implemented a platform where you can create a “SafeView”, which are minimalistic versions of YouTube videos. With these SafeViews, you will be able to share videos with students without being afraid that they can get to potentially inappropriate content.
