Internet Filtering for Teachers Now Allows YouTube

Over the past week we've been testing a different way to implement two-tier internet filtering such that we can offer YouTube access to teachers while restricting it to students. We have now rolled out this solution to all teachers on campus.

This service is tied to the WiFi card in your school-issued laptop, and will not work for personal devices. Here's how it works:

1. You will need to visit https://www.youtube.com to access YouTube (note the "s" after "http"). You should see the YouTube page load:

2. If you DON'T put in the "https://" then you'll see an error like the one below:

3. Similarly, in ClipGrab you also need to use an "https" address, not "http":
4. If you use an "http" address you'll get an error as follows:
Happy YouTubing!
