Is there any way to copy a commercial DVD into Blackboard for class viewing? If not, is there any way to share copies of this--your suggestions. Thank
Copying (aka "ripping") an entire DVD and uploading the content to Butler's streaming server is prohibited. The only way this would be allowable is if you have written permission from the publisher and you share your proof of permission with the Center for Academic Technology.
This having been noted, you can copy small portions that you incorporate into educationally-related projects. See the below links for more information.
You also have these options:
- Show a legally acquired copy of the DVD in class
- Place a legally acquired copy of the DVD on course reserve
