    Sign up for YouTube for schools
    Enable header modification on content filter/proxy
    Verify header modification is working by navigating to youtube.com you should get redirected to youtube.com/education (or such like link)
    Sign into YouTube for schools (on an account not effected by the header modification) account and add a playlist for the channel
    View channel and shout hurrah.

    Did ALL of that - exactly as you state - except the very last 5 words...

    Hi,

    I may not have a solution for you but I have tried accessing youtube for education at my school and found the following. If we say that the account was MySchool and the students tried to access the site www.youtube.com/myschool without using the capitalisation they get sent to youtube.com/education. If they typed it in with the full capitalisation i.e. www.youtube.com/MySchool they land on the correct page and, by clicking on videos they can see the playlists I have created.

    Hope that helps

  8. Thanks to Cheesywolf from:

    That could well work as I also encountered that problem but it later started working. Here is a link to my post on Googles forum.

    OK just having a play and seems to be ok so far.

    If I type http://www.youtube.com I get diverted to youtube/education.

    After login I am being asked to create a YouTube channel. Now the box says to enter a username (and gender) but should I enter the school name instead. Not sure as can't imagine how it will end up, but would have thought all the playlists and videos should be under a school channel and not a person channel.

    EDIT: For a Primary School setup.

    I would have thought the school name. Google does however like to know everything about you and may try and force you to use your name like they did a while ago and its something that isn't reversible.

    Just enter the school name, its what I did. They shouldn't need a personal name for anything like that.

    ERROR

    I type in the school name to create a channel and get the green light to say the name is free but then when I click 'OK' I get an error, An error has occurred while sending data over the network.

    I am still having issues. I can log on to youtube.com/schools and add to our school playlist. BUT I am unable to sort out a shortcut that links to this list. If I copy the address from the school channel and put it in the browser, it reverts to to YouTube for education.
    How do I get my playlist to show - either as a shortcut or any other way?

    What happens if you link them directly to a playlist? I know its not the best method but I'd be interested in knowing if that redirects too.

    That reverts to youtub for edu as well
    SWGfL have beefed up their filtering of late - I know it was working before I had my 5 weeks off because I put a shortcut on the desktop and I wouldnt have done that if it didnt - so I wonder...
