Streaming in Class: Best Practices

For classroom screenings conducted via Zoom faculty should share permalinks with students either via videoconference chat or your courses' Canvas site. Students should watch on their own screens in a separate window and with their Zoom audio muted, and then return to the main meeting for discussion, analysis, etc.

To reduce the likelihood of technical problems during class time, viewing online documentaries is best used as a homework assignment.  Allow the students 1-3 days to view the film independently. Then, faculty can lead the discussion during class time.

Contact Kristan for a permalink if it is not available.

Streaming Rules

Streaming video often can not be used for public film showings. If you are planning a film series, please contact your librarian about purchasing a copy with public performance rights. 

Personal subscription services, such as Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, and Amazon, are not available to libraries or classes due to the contracts.
