Get Streaming Videos

Films On Demand is a state-of-the-art streaming video platform that makes it easier than ever to incorporate outstanding educational programs from Films Media Group into your online or face-to-face classes. Streaming technology allows you to access high quality video content via the Internet. Instead of downloading an entire video file before viewing it, streaming allows you to begin viewing the video immediately while the rest of the program downloads in the background. The ability to view digital video in real time provides instant access to our entire Films on Demand video collection from any computer with a high-speed Internet connection.  You can project the video onto a screen using a smart classroom equipped with a projection system on any ULV campus.

You can use Films On Demand to search for specific video segments, organize videos into folders, email videos to other ULV students and faculty, or create personal playlists for others to view. You can also integrate videos directly into the university’s BlackBoard course management system.

On the Films On Demand homepage (http://0-fod.infobase.com.leopac.ulv.edu/p_Home.aspx) , you can click on the tabs at the top of the homepage to browse for videos by subject, or browse through special collections, such as BBC, ABC News, or Ken Burns.

For more information about using Films On Demand, check out the Library’s YouTube Channel videos:  http://www.youtube.com/ulvwilsonlibrary.  For assistance or to schedule a librarian to speak to a class or department meeting about this resource, contact Wilson Library http://library.laverne.edu/help/ask-a-librarian/subject-librarian/.
