Streaming Media Services Limited

Some of you might have noticed that access to streaming media sites (e.g., YouTube, Google Videos, etc.) is currently being limited in areas of the college. Due to bandwidth restrictions beyond the college's control, certain restrictions have been placed on these media sites. Streaming media sites will only be accessible from 4:30 p.m.–midnight each day. Certain streaming media (e.g., Internet radio and television) will remain blocked.

Streaming media services that the college and Library Services subscribe to will not be affected. This includes resources such as Atomic Learning and unitedstreaming [Discovery Education]—you can discover more information about each source by clicking here.

The college's Information Technology Services (ITS) department is currently working with the college's Internet service provider to resolve this issue in as timely a manner as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate and ask for your patience in the meantime. A notice will be posted as soon as regular Internet service is restored.
