YouTube in the Classroom

While YouTube is available to teachers in the classroom, the West Virginia Department of Education security filters continue to make it problematic. Web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome) handle security certificates differently. At the current time, Google Chrome is the best choice of browser when attempting to use YouTube in the classroom. Users going to https://youtube.com will be redirected to a Webtop login page. . Only teacher credentials will allow YouTube content to be displayed.

Teachers may request that videos be unblocked for everyone. This is called "whitelisting". Here are a series of short video explanations:
