Unless a video is created by you, Rasmussen College, or is covered by a Creative Commons license that allows for commercial use (CC BY, CC BY-SA, or CC BY-ND), the video is most likely copyright protected.  Obtaining permission from the copyright holder is recommended before including the video in a course.

The Copyright Toolkit includes:

  • instructions for obtaining permission to use a copyright-protected video in a course
  • a "Permission Request" form to use when requesting permission from the copyright holder 

Consult the Video page in the Toolkit to view:

  • typical scenarios and recommendations
  • a flow chart to guide decision-making
  • links to video resources that are copyright compliant

The Copyright Toolkit is an excellent resource for Rasmussen Faculty. Use the Toolkit to learn more about copyright and to answer specific questions about the use of resources within Rasmussen courses.

Contact librarians@rasmussen.edu with additional questions about the Toolkit or the Permission Request Form.

Contact compliancequestions@rasmussen.edu if you have reviewed the content in the Copyright Toolkit, but still have a  question about the use of a specific resource in your course.
