It depends. As long as it's done for educational purposes, television programming can be shown in classrooms at the time of broadcast. TV programming purchased on DVD can also be shown in class under the educational exemption.
Recording live TV broadcasts to later play back in the classroom may be done with certain restrictions. Use this chart to help you decide if your recording can be shown.
Please be aware that content from personal subscriptions such as Netflix can't be shown under the educational exemption due to licence restrictions.
Can recorded television be uploaded to Blackboard?
It's possible, but every case is unique and requires individual fair dealing-related analysis from the Copyright team. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
What are the alternatives to live or recorded TV?
Consider using video content made available through our licensed databases such as Films on Demand, Kanopy, Curio, NFB, and McNabb Connolly in your courses. Videos from all of these may be shown in class and linked-to on MySeneca.
