Kids Tube - Monitored Video Sharing for Kids

Parents and teachers want to share videos of their students doing great things like music performances, plays, and other presentations. YouTube is one place that you can do that, but some parents and teachers aren't comfortable with that because of some of the "related" content that appears on YouTube. In a lot of schools YouTube is blocked so teachers are have to look for alternatives. Kids Tube might be the solution to both of these problems.

Kids Tube is a video sharing hosting and sharing site designed for hosting content produced by kids and content about kids. Kids Tube monitors all submissions and monitors comments left on videos. To encourage students to develop their videography skills, Kids Tube holds weekly videos submission contests. The contests are arranged around a theme and one winner is selected by the Kids Tube team.

Applications for Education
Kids Tube could be an excellent alternative to YouTube for hosting and sharing the video projects completed by your students. If you're teaching video production and need some project ideas, check out the Kids Tube contests for ideas.
