You can now create YouTube channels with SSO (Single Sign On)!  

It is now possible to set up a classroom YouTube account that is linked to your Google Apps for Education email address.  Use your classroom channel to compile clips in playlists for easy linking and sharing with students.  YouTube is great for classroom differentiation because it allows you to compile clips on a topic to extend the learning or provide support outside of the classroom. 

1.  Log into Apps via Moodle.
2.  More > Even More

3.  YouTube

4. Click Home (notice the orange bar indicating it is your Apps account)

5. Click on My Channel

6.  Choose a name (whatever you choose will be the easiest way for students to find your channel).  Consider whether you want to check these the boxes.  I left them unchecked. 

7. Uncheck the boxes if you do not what to share your YouTube activities.   Check the boxes to utilize the social aspects your Apps YouTube account and make the experience more social and transparent.
