Instructors may request to have their class reserve videos encoded and linked to their course web page via a digital link. Titles are made available for the duration of the quarter through secure course-management web pages.

They will be accessible only to students enrolled in the class in question and only after logging into the UCLA VPN (Virtual Portal Network). A password-protected course website (Moodle or CCLE) is required to offer media links.

We encode and make available links on a first-come-first-serve basis and try to fulfill all requests as quickly as possible, often within 48 hours. In some cases, the acquisition and encoding of some titles may delay access to the links, or may not be possible at all due to circumstances beyond our control.

Please note that:

  • Only media owned by Instructional Media Collection & Services may be encoded. Instructor/Department-owned media that is not part of the regular IMCS collection cannot be encoded, unless the instructor owns the intellectual property rights to the content.
  • Only the instructor of record may submit a request to link media to their password-protected course web page.
  • Instructors who request to have films linked to their password-protected course web page must explain the pedagogical reason(s) for the request. 

Note: Titles purchased under agreements or licenses that specifically prohibit streaming are not able to be digitized by us and streamed.
