Even a VPN doesn't do it because not all students have VPNs and we have been told not to use Youtube. However, we work around that by downloading them and serving them from alternate sources.

We are in Hanoi, Vietnam and don't suffer the same internet restrictions as China. However, we are using MS Teams in combination with Zoom to give online classes for Secondary and Highschool. Flipgrid (now free with MS Education suite) is also really good for the younger kids.

Additionally, Screencastify has been giving out free subscriptions to schools in Hanoi and may do the same for your school if you ask them. Screecastify is a handy little Chrome extension which allows you to record screen-casts and upload them online. That said, I'm not sure if you can specify anything but Google Drive for upload your screen-casts. You can however store them locally in Chrome and then send the file to your students.

You already stated my reply, the students dont need the VPN access the IT does then downloads the video and uploads it to a supported platform.

I’m in Tbilisi and all schools have been shut down for at least two weeks.

Does anyone out there have any suggestions on how to do high school math assessments at least semi-effectively? My school does not have any platforms that support this directly and I am having a hard time thinking of a way to handle this.
