Faculty Resource Center

Media Services

Our capable and friendly assistants will perform the following services for faculty on a first come, first served basis. Please note our copyright policy.

  • Copyright Policy – The FRC can digitize and convert media to alternate formats so long as the use falls under the fair use provisions of the U.S. Copyright Act or the TEACH Act exemptions found in U.S. Copyright Law (Please note: We do not break encryption)
  • Fair Use Checklist – The fair use checklist can help insure that the scanning of documents or images or the conversion of media is being done in compliance with the law
  • Teach Act Checklist – The TEACH Act checklist can be utilized when considering making digitized films available to students through Blackboard

Digitizing mediaDigitizing

If you have old or fragile media (VHS tapes, slides, overheads, photographs, drawings, etc.), they can be preserved through a digitization process, making them available for use in Blackboard, Office programs, podcasts, or web posts.

The Faculty Resource Center can provide a limited amount of closed captioning. For larger projects, please contact Disability Services.

Scantron imageScantron - NEW form F-1712-PAR-L required!

The Faculty Resource Center has a new Scantron reader, which can review and analyze test questions by displaying the degree of difficulty, discrimination levels, scores, item analysis, and response frequencies. Data can be saved to a flash drive or uploaded to Blackboard. To ease the transition to the new device, we are providing the new Scantron forms for your courses for this semester.

Video formats imageMedia Conversion

We can convert between many different video and image formats. If your video or image is in a format that does not open on your computer, bring or send the file to us and we will (attempt to) convert it to a common file type like a .mp4 for video or .jpg for images.
