A Cleaner YouTube Viewing Experience

Throughout all of the workshops and presentations that I did this summer one of the most popular tools that I shared was A Cleaner Internet. A Cleaner Internet is an extension for Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. The extension allows you to search YouTube and view YouTube videos without viewing the "related" content, advertisements, and comments that appear on YouTube.

Applications for Education
If you want to show YouTube videos in your classroom but you're afraid of what might appear around  the video, install A Cleaner Internet.

View A Cleaner YouTube Without Extensions

Ever since I discovered it last July, I've been promoting using A Cleaner Internet as a way to remove from YouTube unwanted "related" videos and advertisements. The only problem was that it required users to install the extension on Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. That left out anyone working in a school that doesn't allow them to install extensions and anyone forced to use Internet Explorer. That problem has been resolved.

If you point your browser to http://youtube.clea.nr you can search YouTube and watch YouTube videos without viewing any of the "related" videos or advertisements on YouTube.

Applications for Education
YouTube can be a great source of educational material to share in your classroom. Unfortunately, if you try to search YouTube in front of a class, you're open to the possibility that something inappropriate will pop-up. Use http://youtube.clea.nr or the Cleaner Internet browser extension to avoid that potential problem.
