SchoolTube was launched in 2007 about 2 years after the launch of YouTube©. Our co-founders, Carl and Andrew Arizpe, quickly realized that YouTube’s lack of content controls and focus created an opportunity for a video management solution 100% dedicated to K12 learning.
SchoolTube quickly gained in popularity and was endorsed by many of the national K12 school and technical associations – support that we continue to enjoy today.
Today SchoolTube has active users in over 70,000 schools and because of our content controls, SchoolTube is viewable in over 90% of schools, unlike YouTube which is tightly controlled and restricted.
SchoolTube can be implemented under our free, ad-supported plan, or Ad-Free under one of our subscription based-plans.
The Tipping Point. The impact of Covid-19 served as a tipping point in K12 education, forcing nearly every K12 school into remote learning mode.
School leaders and teachers quickly realized that lessons needed to be digitized – even gym teachers saw and responded to the need.
It also became clear that students and parents wanted to see their teachers and maintain the student-teacher relationship.
The combination of digital lessons and visual relationships demands a video-based solution.
Remote classes are only part of the solution. in practice, schools found it difficult to host virtual classes with 100% attendance due to scheduling and in-home technology limitations. Offering both live and recorded classes and lessons is the solution.
SchoolTube is the foundation of a strong distance learning solution offering an integrated virtual class system, video creation tools and safe, COPPA/ADA compliant video hosting and sharing.
