Except in emergency situations, please submit a request at least 3 weeks prior to start of the semester that re-use of videos is planned.
The college has established a process for reviewing re-use of videos to maintain high quality course content as well as positive student perceptions about the quality of their learning.
The College policy is to allow re-use of videos in the following situations:
1. Re-taping is not feasible secondary to faculty unavailability because of an urgent situation (e.g. illness or family emergency).
2. Video consists of “re-usable content.” Re-usable content exhibits the all of following attributes:
- All content refers to foundational knowledge, therapy and practice approaches that are current (e.g, supported by current guidelines, current laws/practice standards, current literature, etc.)
- Note: Since pharmacotherapy changes frequently, in most cases this content will be re-usable for only 1 year following the date of initial taping.
3. Content that is typically deemed re-usable for periods longer than 1 year has minimal reference to therapy and practice activities that are likely to change. In determining the length the content may be re-used, an assessment should be made about whether any cited therapy/practice standards/laws are likely to change.
- The content shows websites, diagrams, etc. that are accurate with respect to current literature/guidelines.
- Explanations of mechanisms of action, rationale, etc. are supported by current research.
- The video does not show discussions with audience/students about activities that date the presentation (e.g., reference to a sports or College event)
- The video/slides do not cite date(s) that reveal(s) when initial taping occurred.
- The quality of the video is consistent with COP current video-captioning quality. (Note: When it is anticipated that content has the potential to be “re-usable,” it is recommended that instructors tape these presentations in a studio setting so they are of high quality.)
- The content is wholly owned, copyrighted or licensed by the UF College of Pharmacy and its Faculty (If content is from an external source, documentation has already been provided to the Ed Tech team noting that COP has permission to provide it to students digitally.)
