Lightspeed Systems Reveals Tips and Tricks for Safe Chromebook Initiatives in New Webinar

October 9, 2017

“Chromebooks & Web Filtering: Everything You Need to Know” is a free webinar open to all K-12 school IT employees.

AUSTIN, TX. — Ed-tech solution provider Lightspeed Systems will be sharing its tips and tricks for filtering school Chromebook deployments in a webinar on Thursday, October 12, 2017. Registration for the free webinar “Chromebooks & Web Filtering: Everything You Need to Know” is open to all K-12 school IT personnel now until the webinar’s start time of 10 AM CDT.

Lightspeed Systems has been in the business of filtering schools since 1999, a track record that has helped establish the Lightspeed Systems Web Filter as the market-leading content filter in K-12 education. Lightspeed Systems Relay for Chrome is the company’s newest product, a Chromebook filtering/monitoring solution that has been adopted by hundreds of schools since its release this year.

In “Chromebooks & Web Filtering: Everything You Need to Know,” Lightspeed team members will be sharing their expertise gleaned from almost 20 years of filtering school networks, as well as the opportunities — and challenges — for keeping students safe and productive on their Chromebooks. The webinar will cover topics including:
• Knowing when it’s time to move filtering to the cloud
• Filtering devices on- and off-campus
• Differentiating policies based on users and groups
• Seeing secure info — like Google searches, YouTube videos and Google Docs info— without a proxy or PAC files
• Integrating with G Suite
• Reporting user activity, including risky or dangerous behavior
• Using filtering policies to keep students on-task and productive

“With more devices in students’ hands than ever, web filtering has become more of a challenge — and a more critical need,” says Lightspeed Systems Vice President of Marketing Amy Bennett. “It’s not just about blocking content; it’s also about making sure students have access to great resources, that they’re learning to use technology productively, and that they’re safe.”
