Need Media?: Getting and Accessing Films for Your Courses

Can I Live Stream a Film So the Class Can Watch It Together?

Your face to face class? Should be fine. Your online class? We wouldn't recommend it.
Most of our access has restrictions on "rebroadcasting." In some cases, the providers have implemented technology that prevents someone from re-transmitting the context. In other cases, it may technically be possible to live stream the content. However, doing so takes up a lot of bandwidth. It is likely that your online students, who may already have bandwidth issues, are not going to have a satisfactory viewing experience. We would recommend putting the links to the videos into your LMS and having your students view videos individually prior to the class meeting.
