Can Faculty use online video content (e.g. YouTube) during classroom instruction?

Faculty will need to check the Terms of Use/Permissions/Licensing of the online video clip or content owner. Statements such as “Reproduction prohibited” or “No classroom projection allowed”, would prohibit classroom viewing even for educational purposes. It is advisable to use hyperlinks or the online video platform’s integrated share tools to direct students to the online videos or video clips. This also applies to SUSS Library’s subscribed databases with online video content such as Kanopy, Videatives and Counselling in Therapy in Video.

If the classroom session is recorded, faculty should also check if the Terms of Use/Permissions/Licensing explicitly allows recording, reproduction, and/or redistribution.

Faculty may seek written permission from the content owner, when in doubt.
