ITLAL can help you digitize your existing media into formats that can easily be made available for students in your courses. The campus-wide streaming media service is Ensemble Video, a content management system that allows you to upload audio and video files and manage your own content. Student access to your content can be managed through Blackboard.
If you already have Ensemble-ready files (formats include .MP4, .MP3, .MPG, and .AVI), you can upload them directly to Ensemble. Click here for instructions on how to do so. If you need to know how to embed a video from Ensemble into a Blackboard secure playlist, please click here for instructions.
If you have new media to be digitized for upload to Ensemble, please submit the form below and someone will follow up to confirm your drop-off time. We are able to digitize from DVD, Blu Ray, VHS and SD cards.
Please note: Media use may be limited by copyright. It is the responsibility of the faculty to ensure that media is used in accordance with the applicable sections of the TeachAct as well as fair use and copyright laws. The University Libraries also has a helpful LibGuide with best practices for using streaming media. Please review these resources before you request media digitization. ITLAL reserves the right to decline digitization of any items that are not owned by either the University Libraries or the instructor. We will gladly consult with instructors on how to obtain digitized copies of material not yet in the Libraries’ collections.
