Online Streaming and Video Services
To supplement instruction during distance learning, many teachers are sharing age-appropriate and course-specific video content with students via platforms, such as YouTube and Vimeo.
In order for students to be able to access these videos, the Chromebooks that were distributed by HCPSS have been enabled to allow access to online streaming services, such as Youtube and Vimeo. Students using either HCPSS devices or personal devices do not need to create accounts and/or share personal data to access HCPSS content on these services.
Teachers are aware that some parents may have blocked access to certain video platforms on personal devices used by their children. Please contact your teacher if you have any concerns or questions about videos that are being assigned to your child. As always, parents and guardians should continue to monitor their students' use of internet sites and services to guard against students accessing inappropriate content.
