Showing Films in Class
Mount Royal University was previously required to keep records of all videos shown to students in class. This is no longer the case. Faculty and instructors are free to show VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray videos to students in the classroom, provided the video is being shown for an educational purpose. This use does not have to be recorded or reported. Videos from online video sites such as YouTube may also be shown in the classroom, although videos which are obviously infringing or pirated copies should be avoided.

If you would like to show videos for something other than an educational purpose, please contact the Copyright Advisor for more information. Contact information for the Copyright Advisor, and further information on copyright at Mount Royal University may be found at the Mount Royal Copyright website.
