Sharing Video

Material labeled “Home Use Only” may be shown in a classroom as long as it is for educational purposes, and only students on the class roster are in attendance.

According to the TEACH Act, only "reasonable and limited" portions of VHS and DVD audiovisual works may be digitized and streamed for the online classroom. An exception to this may be stated in the license agreement that EKU has with the work's vendor.
