Video Use and Higher Education: Options for the Future

​This report is based on the findings of a study designed and funded by Copyright Clearance Center and conducted by Intelligent Television with the cooperation of New York University.

In interviews with 57 faculty and librarians from 20 institutions and across 18 academic departments and schools, the Video and Higher Education Project found data to support the following:

  • The educational use of video on campus is accelerating rapidly in departments across all disciplines—from arts, humanities, and sciences to professional and vocational curricula.
  • Faculty, librarians, and administrators expect their use of video in education to grow significantly over the next five years.
  • Technology, legal, and other barriers continue to thwart faculty finding and accessing the segments of video they want for teaching and lectures
  • University libraries contain significant video repositories but the majority of the content is in analog (VHS) format and/or is not networkable
  • The majority of video usage today is still confined to audiovisual viewing equipment in classrooms or at the library
  • Faculty and administrators expect the sources of their video to shift from offline analog storage to online delivery
  • The demand for educationally-targeted video archives and services is high.
