iPod Touch Content Filtering

Question: I just bought my two daughters Ipod Touch 2nd Gen for Christmas. They are 10 and 12 yrs old and a bit more technology savvy than I when it comes to handhelds. I am concerned about security. I want to filter their internet on the Touch, but I guess it's not really easy because Apple seems to have missed this, other than shutting off their access all together.

Do you know any solutions? I have a wireless network in my home and the girls desktop computers are running Panda and PC Tattletale as per your recommendation. I want to give them internet access, but want to filter the objectionable content out. Just call me "Parentally Cautious". Thanks for any input!

Videocasting tools for teachers and educators

Question: I'd like to put together some training videos for teachers in my district. It's just too hard to get everyone together in the same building, and too expensive to arrange travel for everyone in the current economy.

What tools are available for recording videos or facilitating online training sessions?
