Web filtering in today’s schools is about more than blocking and allowing web sites: it’s about keeping students safe on the internet, web apps, chat rooms, YouTube, and more. Lightspeed Filter™ can be used in conjunction with Lightspeed Alert™ to filter inappropriate content and send real-time alerts for things like bullying and self-harm, while still allowing the learning and collaboration that mobile technology brings.
Our patented device-level filtering agents sit on school-issued devices, so students are protected all the time, wherever they go. We have agents for every operating system, as well as solutions for BYOD, IoT, and remote learning. And don’t worry: students can’t remove or disable the agents to ensure seamless protection.
Videos can be a great way to learn, but YouTube is also full of inappropriate content. Ligthspeed SmartPlay™, included with Lightspeed Filter™, enables schools to provide a safe and customizable YouTube experience to enhance online learning, without inappropriate or distracting content.
With social media, online docs, email, YouTube, apps, browsers, search engines, and more becoming available, school districts face an enormous challenge in achieving the visibility needed to ensure student safety. Learn how Bibb County Public Schools rely on the safety notifications with Lightspeed Alert to keep their students safe.
