Digitizing Videos for Use in Moodle

Faculty members from Loyola and Notre Dame may request that eligible videos or video clips be digitized for use in Moodle. Technology Services will digitize your video, place it on the library's server, and then provide you with a link to the video which you may add to your Moodle course.

Which videos can be digitized?

  • Entire videos or video clips you have personally created.
  • Entire videos or video clips you own the copyright to.
  • Entire videos or video clips produced and distributed by educational media vendors for which the library is able to purchase digital rights. Educational media vendors include but are not limited to vendors such as PBS, Films Media Group, and Films for the Humanities.
  • Video clips from films that digital rights for which digital rights are not able to be acquired.

Which videos can not be digitized?

  • Entire videos produced and distributed by major studios and distributors. This includes videos with theatrical release. Small clips from these films may be used under fair use provisions. Contact Danielle Whren-Johnson in the Technology Services department for additional information.

How long will it take to have my video digitized?

  • The timeframe for video digitization is approximately one week. This timeframe may vary depending on the time of the semester and how many other prior digitization requests have been received. It is always best to provide the Technology Services department as much lead time as possible. Rush requests will be taken into consideration but are not guaranteed.

Are streaming videos of events at Loyola University recorded by Event Services available?
