Streaming video options for faculty

Options for including streaming videos in online classes

DigitalCampus from Swank Motion Pictures, Inc.

DigitalCampus is a collection of over 19,000 theatrical films and television programs available to embed in Canvas. The University can license films for a year from the booking date. Requests for currently licensed films can be processed in one business day. New film requests will have a processing time of 3-4 business days.

Available for course modes: web-based (W), video-streaming (V), or reduced seat time (RA/RS)

Note: mixed-mode (M) and in-person (P) courses cannot request licenses for new films nor renew expiring films but can use films on the currently licensed list.


New Film Requests:

New film requests are limited to 5 new films per course. 

If a course requires more than 5 non-licensed titles, special requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis based upon the overall status of the university’s license and funding.


Regarding Licensed Film Renewals:

Faculty are limited to renewing 10 currently licensed films per course (allowing a total of 15 new and renewed films per course per year). Limited exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis based upon the overall status of the university’s license and funding, and past viewing use of the requested films in the course.


12 films are part of the standing UCF Swank license and will always be available. They do not count against a course's film total:

    • American Beauty (1999)
    • Bully (2011)
    • Collateral (2004)
    • Crash (2004)
    • Double Indemnity (1944)
    • Hot Fuzz (2007)
    • On the Waterfront (1954)
    • Rear Window (1954)
    • Sunset Boulevard (1950)
    • The Quick and the Dead (1995)
    • The Shining (1980)
    • The Yearling (1946)


Swank usage guidelines:

  • Once added to our collection, titles can be used in any course.
  • Films should be booked for the use of the full class and not per individual student requests.
  • Captioning is available in most videos and can be turned on and off as needed within the film. 
  • If a film is listed as having “additional fees & time,” special permissions are required for the additional fee. The film will also have a 4-6 week processing time.
