Questions • Faculty-Student interest • Technical feasibility • Media Preparation • Scalability issues • Policy issues • Future issues

Conclusions Online course reserves for audio and video are a useful and important service for some faculty on our campus at this time. As online access to digital audio and video becomes more widespread and such behavior becomes more practiced, interest and demand will likely increase. However, the technical and staff resource requirements to support, sustain, and scale such a service are not trivial. As we have learned from other supported on-demand services, there are real costs to any realized benefits.

Conclusions • Option 1: Don't offer the service at this time • Option 2: Outsourcing • Option 3: Limited Video Services • Option 4: Audio-only Services • Option 5: Freeze the project and delay the decision • Option 6: Full-scale implementation
