Can anyone approve content on SchoolTube?

No.  Only those moderators approved by SchoolTube staff are able to moderate content.  Approved moderators include teachers, administrators, librarians, etc. whose identities and positions within their schools have been confirmed by SchoolTube staff.

    I am the moderator and just uploaded a video. Got the email reply about the video, but it will not play. Email says:

    Thank you for uploading and sharing your work with the SchoolTube Community!

    Your video has been successfully received, is being processed, and is pending approval. Once an educator from your school approves your video, it will be published. If you don't think there is an educator from your school on SchoolTube, please ask one to sign up.

    Once processed and approved your video will appear here: http://www.schooltube.com/video/c186635d76a54f7e9dfc/History Shorts

    @Gwyn,

    You had accidentally registered as a student, you are now a moderator.

    I also accidentally created an account and I think I chose student as well.  I'm the technology liaison at my school so I would like to be a moderator.  Please let me know if this is possible.

    Hello,

    I am trying to become a moderator.  Put in a request 6 days ago and it still has not been assigned.  Please help me become a moderator.

    Is this site still active?  I may have signed up for a student account by mistake.  It's odd that I have not heard back from anyone in over a week.  I have tried to communicate over this site, twitter, and facebook.  Please help!

    I have been waiting for my account to convert from student to teacher for 3 weeks now.  Also, do teachers have to have other teachers moderate their uploads?

    I thought I signed up as a teacher, but I cannot approve videos. Can you change my account to a teacher account ?

    Don't hold your breath waiting for a reply.  I made the same mistake you did and have filled out multiple help requests and even tried contacting them on facebook and twitter and have received no reply.  I understand that this is a free service and I made a mistake, but this is easily the worst customer service I have ever seen.  

    TeacherTube offers the same service and they actually respond to help requests.

    I'n glad that I read these comments, so now I don't feel as bad.  I have been waiting 3 weeks for moderator access, and haven't gotten a response.  After 2 weeks I submitted a request and included a screenshot of the school directory showing me as an instructor, and a week after that, I still haven't received access or acknowledgement of my request.

    I agree that the customer service is lacking.
