Educational Films Collection: Streaming Films & Blackboard

Guide to help use the Educational Films Collection

Link Builder

Use this to add the Library's proxy prefix to the URL you have for library material.  This will allow off-campus students access.

Slingbox Films to the Classroom

Due to the changing technology available in the University classrooms, it is not always possible to show a film.  Using a Slingbox device connected to a VCR in the Educational Film office we can give you the ability to play a film in your classroom through the internet.  You would control the player just as if it was in the classroom with you.

Adding Streaming Films to Blackboard

Have you found a streaming film that you would like to have your students watch?  Add a link or embed the film into your Blackboard class so that they can watch it ahead of time and discuss it in class.  The following documents (along with the video to the left) will walk you through the process of adding the film in Blackboard.
