We understand that some websites, including YouTube, are blocked for safety reasons in schools. We continuously do our best to ensure that no content in Gooru is offensive or inappropriate for children, as established by the Children’s Internet Protection Act, and we certainly understand your school’s concern. Please provide your school’s IT Department with the following information, and let us know if it requires any additional information:
Gooru makes it easy for teachers and students to find the best online learning resources. Using machine learning and human judgment, Gooru curates, auto-tags and contextualizes collections of web resources to accommodate personalized learning pathways. Multimedia resources available on Gooru dramatically increase student engagement and motivation to learn by connecting topics with 21st century resources and real life applications.
Gooru collections feature the best sets of web resources for learning a given topic. Teachers in the community organize and curate education resources, creating collections for K-12th grade math, science, history and economics topics (with more subjects coming soon).
Many of the video resources used in Gooru collections are hosted on YouTube and therefore have YouTube URLs. These videos, created by NASA, BBC Worldwide, and Khan Academy, are viewed and experienced on Gooru, not YouTube. YouTube videos used in Gooru can be set to specific start and end times, which correspond to the topic a student is studying. This means that while a student is studying on Gooru, he or she is limited to accessing curated YouTube videos, and not the full range of videos available on YouTube.
