YouTube allows billions of people to discover, create, and share originally created videos. YouTube provides a forum for people to connect, inform and inspire others across the globe and acts as a platform for content creators, teachers and advertisers.

As an educator, whether you are considering using videos in your lesson plans, adding historical videos into your social science class, or conducting a video field trip of ancient Roman ruins, YouTube is a great tool for better teaching and learning.

Features and Benefits

YouTube allows you to find videos on many topics from around the world. YouTube EDU is Google’s library of 700,000+ high-quality educational videos from partners like Khan Academy, Stanford and TED-Ed. There are a variety of benefits associated with using YouTube in your class:

  • YouTube engages students through multimedia
  • YouTube EDU videos offer an alternative way to learn new content versus using text-based materials
  • YouTube EDU allows you to quickly discover playlists on topics such as ELA, Math, Science, and Social Science 
  • YouTube allows you to search and filter results (e.g. by video length) to make sure you are getting the best content for your class

To find content that suits your needs, start on the YouTube EDU homepage. Search the content to find videos to support lessons. Create playlists to keep track of videos you want to watch later.

Teachers can also create a channel on YouTube to showcase playlists of favorite videos from across YouTube to introduce or reinforce topics. You can also use your channel to upload videos created by you or your students.

If you have created a channel, you can download the YouTube Creator Studio app to manage your uploads on the go. Creator Studio is a tool that allows you to upload and edit your own videos and manage your channels all from one place. Students can create their own videos to demonstrate their learning while explaining a topic or process. You may also track engagement using YouTube Analytics. 

YouTube in the classroom has privacy controls available through a feature called Safety Mode. This is a setting that helps screen-out potentially objectionable content that you do not want students to see. Google uses community flagging, age restrictions, and other signals, to identify and filter inappropriate content so your students can learn using videos.

With YouTube, you have the freedom to create and customize just the right amount and type of learning material for students to meet their learning goals.
