Library Services for Faculty: Video Course in Moodle

Streaming video

The library has purchased streaming rights to a number of films as well as providing access to the Suter Science Seminar Videos.

Most of these are nursing resources but there are a few other titles as well.

These are housed in the Videos course in Moodle to secure them in compliance with copyright laws and licensing agreements.

Accessing Videos course in Moodle

All users will need to self-enroll in the Videos course in Moodle. You will only need to do this once. The Videos course will be listed in your courses once you enroll.

1) Login to Moodle

2) Find the "All Courses" link and click on it.  Look for it at the bottom of the list of "My Courses" on the left side of the screen.

3) Search for "videos"

4) Click on the "Videos" course which has Jennifer Ulrich as one of the Curators.

5) If you are not enrolled, Moodle will ask you to enroll.  You will then have access to the films.

I want the Library to stream a film

The library will acquire streaming rights when possible for videos when there seems to be a compelling reason to do so.  We only stream when we can purchase rights, get permission or make a case for fair use under the Copyright law.

Questions we ask at the library when making decisions about purchasing streaming rights:

Are streaming rights available at a reasonable price?

Will the video be used more than once (i.e. in more than one course or in the same course from year to year)?

Is this video intended for multiple programs and/or programs that have students at a distance?

How do students use this video?  Are they primarily watching it in class or viewing the film as an outside activity?

Please contact Jennifer Ulrich if you have questions about streaming video.

Streaming Videos linked to Individual Classes

Faculty may add a link to individual films in  their own Moodle courses.

This is done by navigating to the page for the individual film and then using the URL in the Address Bar.

Video linking

You can copy and paste this URL into your course and students will link back to the video. 

If students are not enrolled in the video course, they will be able to enroll themselves through this link.
