Have you downloaded the Flash video and cannot view it?
You may need a desktop player to play the Flash videos.  A free player is available at

Can schools download videos to local servers for permanent access?
No, this is a violation of copyright. Permanent downloads will result in producers no longer selling digital videos to this and other consortia for unlimited statewide access.

Why is a username/password required?
These videos have been purchased and made available for use by the Ohio K-12 community only. The use of a username and password to access the videos ensures that licensing agreements are met and copyright is not violated. For computers with IP addresses registered with an Ohio Information Technology Center (ITC), a username and password are not needed. For home use and non-registered schools, use the current INFOhio Core Collection username and password, if prompted. Contact your ITC or AMC if you need that information.
