Would not embedding a video for students to view in a class assignment designed context be considered "fair use" based on the Teach Act? I don't think that you can rip and upload, based on the Teach Act, but as I understand it, you should be able to embed or provide a link. Some schools block youtube, but some will allow Teachertube or other video content sites that also offer embed code.
