Jeff,
My understanding is that the new multimedia copyright laws speak to just that issue. Face to face teaching would be the case in this scenario.

We are starting to think about streaming video, and of course pubic
performance issues arise. Would public performance permission be
required if a video is being streamed over a course reserve web site
where only students enrolled in the class could access and view the
stream? An argument could be made that the face-to-face teaching
exemption would apply. (Those faces are just a bit farther apart.)

Thanks,

Jeff
