Videos and tv programmes
Television & radio programmes
You can record television and radio programmes 'off-air' for use in teaching or use programmes from On-Demand services such as i-player. The recording can be shown during any class and can also be embedded in Power Point presentations on GSM Learn. They can also be included in the recording made by lecture capture.
Some broadcasters and programme makers are covered by the ERA licensing scheme - and use of these videos needs to comply with the ERA licence conditions as outlined briefly below
ERA Broadcasters include:
Programmes from the above channels can be recorded without infringing copyright, provided that the re-showing is solely for educational purposes. You can also show programmes from iplayer, Demand5, 4 on Demand and ITV player. The recordings can be stored digitally (eg on GSM Learn), however students based outside of the UK cannot watch the recordings from the above broadcasters. Recordings (including those on the VLE) need to be labelled as outlined here: Click here for labelling instructions
Other videos, tv programmes, commercial films, videos and DVDs
Can be shown in class for educational purposes but not loaded on GSM Learn or copied or converted to another format or saved on a device. This means that you should not include a substantial portion of any film or video in lecture capture recording. A film that is shown to our students or staff outside of a timetabled class or the VLE is also permissible as long as the showing is clearly for an educational purpose. Extra-curricular film showings can be educational or instructional in nature and can benefit from an exemption under s32 or s34 CDPA. Showing for social or entertainment purposes would need a Filmbank licence. If in doubt please contact copyright@GSMLondon.ac.uk
YouTube and other video-sharing services
These can be shown in a timetabled lecture or class for instructioonal purposes in the same way any other video can as long as you can be sure the video has been put on Youtube by the rightsowner. Also some videos are uploaded to YouTube on a Creative Commons videos can be included in recorded lectures, but it may be advisable to provide a link for students as the lecture capture may not produce a particularly watchable copy of the video.
Be careful when linking to YouTube content or other videos on the internet as you need to avoid linking to content which has been illegally uploaded to Youtube. To find out more about the use of videos from the internet, please see GSM's Guide to Getting the Most from Free Resources.
