Using YouTube Live to create broadcasts

YouTube Live

The following tutorial will demonstrate how to most effectively set up a YouTube Live “Broadcast” for your school.

You will need

  1. To be logged into your YouTube channel with verified status.
  2. Access to the broadcast accounts spreadsheet with times & dates.
  3. A chromebook, tablet, or iPad with a front-facing camera.

Step 1

Verfified status

First, make sure you are presenting from a YouTube channel that’s verified. To see if this is the case first log into google account and then visit and look for the bolded “Verified” status next to your accounts name.

If your account is not verified watch this video and follow the steps. It’s pretty easy, just make sure you have your cell phone or classroom phone next to you.

In this example I’ll be using my personal account for demonstration purposes.


Creator Studio

On the home page, look for your profile icon and select “creator studio

Once you’re in creator studio you’ll be taken to your video dashboard, which showcases all your uploaded videos (if any) and gives you some options.


Look for the Creator Studio on left side and click Live Streaming > “Events”

Live Events

If this is your first time scheduling an event you will see this message above.
