Perfect for film assignments, streaming video allows faculty and instructors to regain class time for in-depth discussions, and allows students to prepare for lectures, and exams.  In this session, we will introduce you to multidisciplinary online streaming databases, and present a variety of handy tools for working with the materials (clip, playlist, and embed tools). With access to over 155,000 online titles, in over 100 subject areas, we will look at films provided by Bullfrog Films, California NewsreelCriterion, Icarus, First Run FeaturesMedia Education Foundation, PBS, and more.
