      Thanks for pushing for an improvement in our filtering. As a first step, we just released an algorithm to do automatic website categorization for the three most requested categories – “pornography”, “online games”, and “movies and television”. Thus, if a student accesses an uncategorized site, we check the content on each page and add it to the above categories automatically if the content matches.

      What this means for you: considering that there are thousands of websites created every day specifically to circumvent URL blocking, category blacklisting will be more effective in blocking new and uncategorized sites. In addition, you should be able to spend less time manually tracking new sites that are getting around the filter and adding them to our and your blacklists.

      We are currently categorizing 2000+ sites every day that students are visiting that would get around any list or database type filter. Please let me know…

        We happen to have students who say "it wasn't me," "I stepped away, it was someone else" Having a photo would be great if the privacy isn't an issue.

            yes, it would be great if a teacher could immediately unblock a site. It could get a temporary unblock, i.e. 1 hour, for that class only, etc. so it doesn't affect the rest of the school. It could also send an email to the administrator to request a permanent unblock if they thought that was appropriate.

                      I agree! Even if they could add it to a scene so it's temporarily allowed only in their class. We have youtube blocked except for specific videos and when it's student driven researh, the teacher can't always let me know ahead of time what they want to see.

                      Or if teachers could override a blocked video with their credentials and an email gets sent to the admin or logged in go guardian to check the videos later.
