Video Streaming Service for NYU Classes: Digital Campus Video Reserve Service

Description of Service

Digital Campus, by Swank Motion Pictures, is a video streaming service that allows faculty and instructors to provide students enrolled in their courses online access to films assigned for course reserve viewing.

Digital Campus has over 18,000 films available for use from major Hollywood studios (Warner Bros., Disney, MGM, UA, Lionsgate, Miramax, and Columbia) plus many other independent studios.  

This service is intended for faculty and instructors as a means to enhance their lesson plans with streamed videos, eliminating the need to make film clips.  Lesson plans remain available for student access beyond a semester's end. Please search the Swank Digital Campus website to see what film titles are available.

How it works

When placing a request for a streamed video, be advised that it can take up to 10 days to provide a requested video.  (If NYU has already requested a particular title, turnaround time should be very short.)

Digital Campus will provide the faculty / instructor with an embed code for the film, which must then be posted into the Lessons page, only, on their NYU Classes site.

Students access streamed videos via password on their laptop or desktop computers, only.

The video title(s) will remain available for student access for the duration of the semester for which it was requested.  

To make requests, use the the following Online Form

Who can use the service

This service is available to NYU faculty and instructors, only.

Faculty and instructors must have a current NYU Classes site in place to be eligible to receive streamed videos.

Students must be enrolled in your course in order to password access streamed video titles.

Faculty and instructors experiencing any problems with the streaming service can contact Digital Campus directly at 1-888-389-3622 [U. S. Central Time] during regular weekly business hours. Evenings and weekends, a message can be left (response time will vary depending upon time/day of message.)  International sites should contact Swank via email:
