For now, I am trying to learn to live with it. I make the teachers send me any link they want and I create the playlists. It puts a load on me, but there is no way that I am going to just open youtube up for the teachers.
VUSafe was a very easy site for our teachers to "self-maintain" a list of videos for their classes. Most were very good about it. One music teacher had 15 pages of nothing but CMT music videos that she used to "teach" with. Sure. When she asked if I were going to make her an admin so she could watch her videos, I told her, after I stopped laughing, to get the Wondershare utility and download her videos at home and come play them through her computer at work. So far, I am still employed.
This whole Youtube / Google / Youtube for Schools is a hassle. With no support from the Google/Youtube side. The questions that are on their forum are months old with no responses from G/UT.
As to the Astaro Web content, well, I am used to it now. The whole " if it won't work with the HTTP filter then exempt it" seems like a copout, but what can you do?
Were the Astaro/Sophos solution not $28k less expensive I would still be using the M86 solution. And if a frog had wings.....
This Sophos appliance.... how is the interface different from the UTM interface? Does it operate in "pass-through" mode or does it work by monitring a port off our switch, like the M86 appliance does? $$$ Are the logs kept on the one device or is it a set of multiple devices?
Any real benefit besides the UI?
