How to allow YouTube at your school

We take students' privacy very seriously. That's why when students watch a video on Edpuzzle, they'll be streaming either from www.youtubeeducation.com, using the YouTube Player for Education, or www.youtube-nocookie.com, rather than streaming videos directly www.youtube.com. You can learn more about the YouTube Player for Education here and about our partnership with YouTube here.

To use YouTube within Edpuzzle at your school, you'll likely need to ask your IT admin for assistance. You can share our Spec Sheet with them as well as the instructions on how to configure your filters as explained below:

Filter configuration for students

This means that while viewing YouTube videos assigned through Edpuzzle, students will only be able to view those specific videos. They will not be able to search for videos directly on YouTube.

Visit this test student page to make sure your filters are configured correctly.

Filter configuration for teachers

This way, teachers will be able to search for YouTube videos on Edpuzzle without issue.

Visit this test teacher page to make sure your filters are configured correctly.

 

Note: If your students are using the Edpuzzle Android or iOS app, they'll be streaming directly from www.youtube.com, so you'll need to allow it in those cases.

If you have any additional questions about configuring your network filters, please email us at support@edpuzzle.com and we’ll be happy to help!
