How to use Swank

1. Select a film by searching the DigitalCampus website.

To get started, first determine if the film (or television episode) you want to share with your class is available via DigitalCampus.  Search DigitalCampus:

You can search using the box in the upper right corner of the web page, or click on "Movie Search" in the menu on the left.

2. Fill out the Request Form.

Request the film using the online Request Form.

If the film is currently licensed for UCF (see list of available titles), you  will be emailed the embed codes within 1 business day of the request.

If the film is not on the available titles page but is in the Swank catalog, it can take up to 5 business days for the request to be processed.

3. Check your email for a URL.

By license, DigitalCampus films are to be used for educational purposes only and made available to students through a password-protected site like Webcourses.

You will be emailed the embed code for the film(s) as well as the expiration date of access (one year). Approximately 30 days before the expiration date of access, you will be emailed to check if you will continue to need the film.

4. Embed the film in Webcourses. 

After receiving the URL, you will have to embed the film in Webcourses for the students to have access.  Film links MUST be placed within Webcourses to satisfy license requirements for restricted access.

Follow these instructions for embedding films your course.
