Both last year and this year, I produced videos for my students as tutorials for the lessons on Code Studio. I posted these videos on my YouTube channel as public. Recently, I was asked by Code.org to make these videos private due to students in other classrooms using them to do lessons step-by-step without trying them on their own. At my school, we use standards-based grading and instruction and students grades are based only on summative assessments (I use the projects at the end of each unit), so I don’t use completion of lessons to calculate students’ grades.
After making the videos private, I was contacted by several teachers asking what had happened to the videos because they found them really helpful for their own learning. Currently, I have only given access to students in my district through their district-created google account. I’m wondering: Should I give access to teachers who would like to use them to help their own learning so they can better support their students?
