We have 3 different suggestions for faculty members seeking to add streaming or digital content to their Bridges courses for student access:

1.) Obtain permission from the copyright holder of the media, asking to temporarily load it into Bridges for student access, taking it down immediately after the class has viewed the content.

2.) Put a hard copy of the media on reserve at the library desk for students to check out for up to 3 hours to view on their laptops. If the library or faculty member doesn't own a copy, inquire with acquisitions to obtain a copy.

3.) In Bridges, provide a link to the streaming content, i.e. Netflix, Amazon, etc. This requires students to either have a Netflix or Amazon Prime account, OR Amazon offers thousands of titles for pay-per-download, which is usually around $2 per title.
