As class projects move from paper and pencil to digital, teachers increasingly turn to video production as a form of student assessment.  But where do you house all these awesome films your students are creating? On YouTube!

Integrated with Google accounts, YouTube can provide everything needed to publish to the web. Your students must have a completed Cloud Permission form. See our Google Apps for Education for more information.

It is important to note that YouTube's Terms of Service state that no person under the age of 13 should be using its video upload / edit service. If your students are under 13, you should upload their videos to your own channel and playlists.

As of July 2015, BPS students do not have access to the Creator Studio's Video Editor while at school. 

Students (13yo and up) do have the ability to create their own channel and upload their videos to it.
