Sharing YouTube

If you’ve ever wanted to share a YouTube video with students, we have a new service with Lightspeed (our filter) that lets you open a video, tag it, and make it available for students. All that and no new password to remember! Here’s how:

Safe Video Portal

Safe Video Portal

  1. Find the video you’d like to share . . . probably on YouTube.
  2. Copy the address or URL of the video.
  3. Open a new Explorer or Firefox window. Visit our Educational Video Library.
  4. Login using your network username and password.
  5. Click on Submit Video.
  6. Paste in the address or URL. Click Submit.
  7. Add the information about your video and add tags. Tags will make it easy to find . . . there are existing tags for each school: dhs, dms, epes, mes, wes, yes. You can also tag videos with your name which creates your own “channel” for students.
  8. Submitted videos are added to a list and “approved” at least once per week.
  9. Once a video is added, students will have access through the Safe Video Portal. You may use that link to share with students, embed in Moodle, etc.

Here’s a set of directions for adding to the safe videos portal.
