  • Show television shows for educational purposes. The Center for Educational Resources (CFU) provides access to selected television programs from several Danish and foreign TV channels, such as DR1, DR2, DRK, TV2 and the BBC.
  • Stream TV shows individually through MitCFU. Teachers and students can access the service on campus and from home.
  • Record TV shows on digital and analogue media directly from TV channels.
