This is my first year teaching in a classroom where all of my students have Chromebooks and it has been AWESOME! I've been using YouTube a lot to upload tutorials (especially for math). Sometimes when I create math reviews with embedded tutorials, my students get the dreaded "This video is not available in safety mode" error screen!
So what's the trick?
This won't work if you have the standard 5g of storage...or it won't work for very long. If your school is a Google Apps district, you should have unlimited storage, so hosting your videos here won't be an issue.
Is there a downside?
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have issues.
Thanks for reading,
