YouTube in the Classroom
"YouTube EDU is a sub-section of YouTube that contains high-quality educational content." Selected material from YouTube that is cleared for educational use. "YouTube for Schools is a network setting that, when implemented, allows your school to access the educational content on YouTube EDU while limiting access to non-educational content on YouTube.com." This places the selected material from EDU on your school's local server, particularly relavant to grade schools which often block YouTube. "YouTube.com/Teachers is a how-to site that shows you how to use YouTube in the classroom."
MSVU has public performance licenses that allow you to stream content at your events, even if it's not for an educational purpose. Audiences must not be charged admission to see the film. Check for studios represented and covered by license for Audio-Cine and Criterion.
You can also check the Library Catalogue for videos owned by MSVU, as they often have performance rights purchased at the time of their acquisition by the Library.
If you would like to show a video on campus but you're not sure what to do, please contact your liaison librarian for more information.
