If you need to incorporate videos into an online class, be aware that the video you use must come with a streaming license anytime commercial content is used. Copyright forbids anyone from removing content on a DVD and uploading it onto any site, including Moodle, as this is a violation of the Technological Protection Measures built into a DVD. You can ensure that any video you use is legal by following the processes below.
2. Link to Social Media videos available online for free.
3. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org at the John E. Robbins Library to ask them to secure a Streaming License for a video you want to use in Moodle
Linking and Embedding Library Videos
In order to make library owned videos available online to your students, follow the Instructions below.
A. Locate the video in one of the library’s Video Databses.
B. Once you are in a database you need to locate any URLs or Embedding codes needed for sharing. As an illustration of this see the screenshots below.
Note that there is a second https:// in boldface AFTER the authentication URL in normal typeface (i.e. Ezproxy). The second contains the URL for a the Video White Like Me.
Together, they are used to (1) prompt for a username and password, then (2) take people to a specific location on the Internet after they enter a username/password.
Use this whole URL to take people to library funded e-resources. It is not needed for Open Content on the Web such as Web sites or Open Educational Resources.
