All that is required is a YouTube Account and an Edmodo Class/Group.
1. Login to YouTube and enable your account for streaming.
Log into YouTube account. Any teacher with a Google Account can use it to set up YouTube for classroom use.
NOTE: It takes YouTube 24 hours to enable your account for live streaming the first time you do it, so please make sure to set this up ahead of time.
2. Create a new Webcam or Stream
From here, the setup will be a little different depending on whether you need to live stream just yourself to your Class (using the WEBCAM tab), or if you need to live stream your computer Desktop to your Class (using the STREAM tab).
To live stream just yourself to your Class:
To live stream your computer Desktop to your Class:
We used OBS encoder, one of the options provided by YouTube. It allows you to add a picture-in-picture effect if you want students to see you as you give your instruction. It takes a little bit of setup depending on your machine, but we were able to get it ready in about 10 minutes.
3. Get your Edmodo Class ready to start your stream
Setup your Edmodo Class before starting your Webcam or Stream.
4. Start your Webcam/Stream
Back in YouTube, start your live stream to share live with your students. Navigate to the “MANAGE” tab inside YouTube Studio.
When the session ends, the recording will stay in the Class available to your students and can be rewatched as needed.
