Licensed Databases

UMass has licensed a number of video databases so that faculty and students may use the content in class. You may also link to them through your Moodle classes and students may access them off-campus using their Net ID.

Personal Subscriptions

If you are enrolled in a course that requires you to watch a lot of full-length feature movies, your professor might require a personal subscription to a movie rental service. Companies like Netflix and Blockbuster offer both DVD rentals and on demand streaming.Some cable companies also provide on demand movie content.
