BASCOM Releases New PlayRight ™, a Comprehensive YouTube and Video Content Management System for its Filter Solutions
New PlayRight™ Promotes Productive Learning with Videos
PlayRight, BASCOM's new built-in, comprehensive YouTube and video management solution, is now included in these filter solutions—Global Chalkboard, Frontera, and Patronus. In addition to YouTube filtering, PlayRight is packed with these slick features:
Removes Comments & Suggested Videos
Now a YouTube video can be viewed without distractions. Enabling the new PlayRight setting on the Add Lesson/Profile screen removes comments and thumbnail images of suggested videos.
Caution: Your browser's cache must be cleared before being able to view YouTube videos without comments or suggested videos. For assistance, please call BASCOM Technical Support at 1-888-922-2726 (Option 3).
PlayRight also works with channels, so you can create a complete repository of videos without comments or suggested videos displaying.
Includes TeacherTube and SchoolTube
PlayRight now supports allowing only those videos you want students to view on TeacherTube.com and SchoolTube.com by following the same procedure used to allow a YouTube video.
Supports Shortened URLs
The shortened URL appearing under the "Link to the video" can now be used to allow a single video by copying it onto the Allowed Sites list.
Other new features in this release:
A new Acceptable Use Policy report is now available to view those users that have agreed to your policies.
Predefined Firewall Rules
Additional predefined firewall rules have been added to support iChat®, secure mail ports, and video conferencing.
Customized Blocked Site Screen
When using the Feedback Message option on the Block Site Notification screen, are you getting feedback emails that are missing useful information? If so, you can now code variables on your web server to retrieve URLs, blocked reasons, and lessons. For more information, call Technical Support at 1-888-922-2726 (Option 3).
