Can students watch YouTube?

There are three policies;

  • Staff – unfiltered content
  • High School – filtered content with access to YouTube
  • Default – Middle School students and others will have YouTube and all content filtered. This is because Middle School students are usually under 13, and there are many laws regarding content accessed by children under 13.

The network needs to know the identity of the user to apply the network policy.  So you will need to log in to APS wifi, OneLogin, MapMyNetwork Drives on shared PCs, etc to determine which policy to apply.

IS is looking at various ways to accomplish this, particularly on Macs and iPads. You may see a generic white login screen.  Enter your regular account user name and password.  After that your content will be filtered or unblocked following the correct policy.
