UMA Streaming Videos

UMA Libraries is committed to helping other UMS campuses successfully provide streaming film for use in distance courses and in the learning management system (currently Brightspace). Beginning in Fall 2019, UMA Libraries ceased purchasing physical DVDs for non-UMA campus requests and converting physical media to digital streams for non-UMA campus faculty. UMA staff can provide training and/or documentation for campuses who wish to provide this service on their own.
