  5. Do your videos include public performance and closed-circuit rights?
  6. Yes, all of our videos come with public performance and closed-circuit broadcast rights. See also digital download rights.

  7. Can a single video program from a series, workshop, or library be purchased online?
  8. We offer our videos only in sets for online DVD or digital download purchase. However, you can view individual programs for the vast majority of our series online at no charge.

  9. What kinds of related guides, books, Web sites, and other resources accompany your videos?
  10. Many of our video series, libraries, and workshops have coordinated guides and textbooks; some of them have additional printed readers, audiocassettes, and other special materials. You may order single copies of these coordinated materials here online or by calling 1-800-LEARNER. If you are ordering multiple copies for course adoption purposes, however, we will refer you to the original publisher of the books and other materials, because Annenberg Learner is the "publisher" only of the videos. Please note that prices for these coordinated books and other materials are set by individual publishers, not by Annenberg Learner.

    Free, related Web sites are available here online by clicking on the button you’ll find on the left-hand side of the Web page where the videos are described. These special Web sites for our videos are freely open to visitors, and do not require special "user IDs" or "passwords."

    Note: For textbook ISBN, please call 1-800-LEARNER.

  11. Can you send me a desk copy, examination copy, or teacher’s edition of a book accompanying your videos?
  12. Annenberg Learner does not offer desk copies, examination copies, or teacher’s editions of books directly, because we are not the publishers of most of the books accompanying our programs. We "publish" only the videos. We are happy to refer you to the appropriate publisher who can supply the desk copies, examination copies, or teacher’s editions you are seeking.

  13. Can I order online using a purchase order?
  14. You may email your purchase order to annenberglearner@vsginc.net or you can print out our order form (PDF) and either mail it to:

  15. When do I need to purchase a digital license and what is the cost?
  16. Annenberg Learner has exclusive rights to distribute digital versions of video series. Therefore, institutions that intend to distribute the video to students for course use via a password protected server must sign a digital license agreement. The license has a time limit of three years and allows only password protected servers to be used. The cost for the license is $500 per series for the term indicated. For further details on the digital license contact: order@learner.org.

  19. What use rights come with the digital download?
  20. An individual purchaser can view the video on a computer or a hand-held device, or can show the video to a class from a single computer. Putting the video on a server requires the purchase of an additional digital license. To use the video as part of a college course offered or credit or non-credit requires an additional course license with student fees may apply. For specific details, please view the digital download purchase terms of use.
