Streaming Media for Courses

The Libraries will make streaming versions of media available in Moodle course sites. We will stream media in keeping with the TEACH Act, the College's Copyright policy, and available library resources. This means that:

  • We will require a copy of the final course syllabus, on which the title of the work must appear.
  • Works to be streamed must be owned by the Libraries. We will attempt to purchase copies of media for our collection when possible.
  • We will not prepare for streaming third-party copies, recordings or transfers, including rentals or personal recordings of broadcasted material.


In order to request streaming audio for a course, please send a list of required recordings and your course syllabus at least 2 weeks before the semester (or date needed for streaming) to Adam Crandell at Once the streaming audio is ready, it will be linked in your Moodle course.


In order to request streaming video for a course, please fill out this form for each film and send your course syllabus to Laurie Allen at Once the streaming video is ready, it will be linked in your Moodle course.

Because many films are only available for temporary streaming rights at a cost of $125 per course, we ask that you to indicate whether you would like the Libraries to purchase the streaming rights at that price. For those films not available for lease, we will attempt to obtain permission from the rights holder of the work.

Once you have submitted your request, you will recieve an email with further details on how the streaming video process works. If you would like to schedule a film screening venue for your class, please fill out this form.
