Time for Geography videos are hosted through Vimeo and Cloudflare and embedded in the Time for Geography project website: https://timeforgeography.co.uk.
If your district/school has vimeo.com blocked for student devices, it is still possible to enable Time for Geography videos. Please forward this information to your system/network administrator so they can setup the necessary access.
Time for Geography looks for the following resources to be accessible to determine if Vimeo is available:
- https://player.vimeo.com/api/player.js and
To enable access to Time for Geography videos for your students, please follow the steps below (for administrators):
- Unblock vimeocdn.com, vimeo.com/api, player.vimeo.com
- Add vimeocdn.com, vimeo.com/api, player.vimeo.com as Allowed Referrers
- Ensure your web filter allows secure (encrypted) requests from vimeo.com
- Clear the browser cache (in chrome, safari etc.)
Please note that the above steps will still block students from accessing vimeo.com directly and only allows them to access embedded Vimeo videos on websites allowed by your network (including Time for Geography). As network setups vary, we recommend that you test these settings thoroughly before making them live across your network.
Cloudflare video streams are hosted at the domain https://iframe.videodelivery.net, which needs to be unblocked in order to stream Time for Geography videos.
