RE: video streaming on course reserve web site

All:

My questions:

Does this bill address streaming an entire video for students enrolled in a
specific on-campus course to access 24/7 for a specific number of days or
weeks, assuming access to the viewing is password protected?

Or, does this mean all enrolled in the course viewing just a portion of a
video at one specific time (this seems impossible because many servers
could not handle the traffic of many simultaneous hits and this is not true
distance education).

And what is this definition of performance video ala The Technology
Harmonization and Education Act?

Curious minds NEED to know.
