Streaming Video through Course Reserves

The UI Libraries recommends using the Course Materials+ system to add streaming video to your ICON site. In addition to providing off-campus access with HawkIDs, this will enable the Course Reserves staff to access the library materials in ICON to update links and troubleshoot, if necessary. See the Streaming Video in ICON (Course Reserves) tab for more information.
