9 UNL Academic Video (VidGrid)

UNL Academic Video is provided by VidGrid
This is the video streaming and lecture capture system used by the University of Nebraska. The service is available to instructors and students at UNL. The primary way to access the UNL Academic Video service is via Canvas as the service is for academic courses for credit at the University of Nebraska.
Non-Academic videos should not be stored on the VidGrid service.
Professional closed captioning is currently available only to accommodation requests from the Office of Service for Students with Disabilities. As the semester progresses, we may be able to approve requests for all. We will announce this widely if professional captioning becomes available later.
