Beginning in July, YouTube has restructured the way content is accessed that does not require the use of a user identification portal. This new change required by YouTube will provide users increased usability and security when accessing content.
Students will automatically be able to access YouTube content that is rated G or TV Y after signing into their District provided device. Please note: students will not be able to access restricted videos even if they are logged in with their LAUSD student account due to CIPA compliance.
Please also note, if you are logging in with your personal Google account (non-LAUSD) through the District network you will be in the default setting, which is restricted mode.
Important: If the device accessing YouTube is a shared device, the user should log out before leaving the system to prevent unauthorized access to YouTube.
If you are unable to access a YouTube video after following the steps noted below, please create a service ticket through Remedy at https://lausd.onbmc.com or call the ITD Help Desk at 213-241-5200.
Here are the steps that are now required to allow employees to access restricted videos:
