Course Materials

The Language Center (LC) has offered FAS and DCE courses the ability to stream audio and video materials via their Canvas sites. In addition to textbook media and other materials, we have streamed foreign language titles, subject to availability and educational fair use. As of Fall 2021, we are transitioning this service to Harvard Library. 
Upon receiving a request to stream, we must first obtain a physical, legally-acquired copy of the material. The Library must either have a digital license for the media or physical media that is not readily available on commercial streaming platforms. Additionally, the streamed media request form will require upload of a syllabus or course plan with the title or titles in question indicated as required.
Depending on whether the media is already in the Library system, requests may take anywhere from 1-4 weeks to process, so we ask that requests be made well in advance of the dates on which they are needed. Please use this form to make requests: Visit our Streaming Media Policy page for more information.
