TOOLS & FEATURES

  • After you've chosen the subject area or grade level, you can use YouTube videos pre-loaded. 
  • Two "class types" can be created:  Classic (student login needed) OR Open (no login required - students access videos using a link - great for elementary students).
  • If using an "Open" account, student nicknames are created so will remain anonymous.
  • If using a "Classic" account, student progress can be tracked through the "Gradebook" tab.

BEST PRACTICE USE

Students Over 13:  If the tracking feature is used, students will need to create an account using the SD72 Microsoft account, however, Parent Consent is necessary.  Students can access "OPEN" classes anonymously.
Students Under 13:  Parent Consent is needed to create an account BUT students can access "OPEN" classes anonymously.
