In this more scholarly alternative to Netflix or Amazon Prime, this content is ready for showing in a class, for using in a project, or for just plain viewing. Do be aware that the software does anonymously keep track of the productions of interest to the WSU audience so that Libraries can purchase viewing rights to the most-watched films. Certainly, if you decide to plan on showing a production in class regularly, please let me know so that we can work on Kanopy's continued funding.
