School Safe

Is it possible to create a school friendly account where students do not have access to inappropriate content such as curse words? I want to use this app as a teaching tool for my music exploratory classes but it is too easy to stumble upon objectionable content.

    Thanks for your suggestions! I can easily stop my kids from listening to random music and reading the comments. I was more concerned about a student searching for a drum loop and getting a loop with and expletive in the title or track. Thanks for the ideas, I'll continue to monitor and find new solutions to safe guard.

    Perhaps, rather than put students at a computer each and hope that they can filter themselves, you put setups that you want to highlight on a projector and lead the class through a single display. Or, you start a blank project on this projector and the whole class collaborates on a single project. I know these solutions compromise the freedom of each individual student, but if your goal is music exploration, this might be a reasonable way to do that.

    Other DAWs can easily be used educationally without worrying about online vulgarity because they are standalone, detached from any platforms. Audiotool's integration of DAW and platform complicates things, but I think a solution, albeit one that requires a structure change, might be to have teacher accounts in which teachers can add student sub-accounts. All the students under the same teacher might then form an isolated class community and the teacher may be able to choose existing tracks to be visible within the class.

    I know of a way, What if there was an option to disable the community along with the comments and make it so teachers have control over what they want their students to see

    Good question. Can you make any suggestion how this could work? For instance would it be enough if all curse words are replaced by ****? It gets pretty hard on the samples though, because that would require speech-recognition. Also be aware that all curse words can be written quite creatively (F**K). There will be no perfect solution.
