Video47 is a video streaming system to deliver on-demand academic content.

Videos are embedded within Sakai course sites. To watch videos for a class, students go to their course, and look for a tool named “Video47.”

Getting Content in to Video47

Faculty can log in directly to Video47 with their usual Pomona username and password to search available films, and if they wish, create and edit their own playlists. If the films you’d like to use are not already in the Video47 repository, we will need you to provide us a copy so that we can encode them.

We must use legally purchased copies of the videos you wish to encode. We cannot use duplicates or rental copies, and we cannot use content from streaming services (eg: Netflix).

The Claremont Library is very helpful in acquiring legal copies of videos for faculty course use. Please let us know if you have questions about the library acquiring films you would like to use in your courses.

Drop off your DVDs/videotapes with a completed Video47 request form at the ITS Help Desk at 156 East 7th Street.

Please give us as much advance time as possible. We try for a one-week turnaround but there are times when that may not be possible.
