Continuing Resource for Fall 2018

Continuing for Fall Semester 2018!

The Libraries has continued to fund the Kanopy educational video streaming service, a service that offers thousands of documentaries, training films, and theatrical releases. Click to get started. 

At the very top of the Kanopy homepage, notice the "subjects' pull-down list next to the orange "Kanopy" logo.  If you choose "Education," the fourth choice from the top, you will see that it becomes divided into "teacher education development" and "education documentary."  Kanopy content is ready for showing in a class, for using in a project, or for just plain viewing. 

Please be aware that in our Patron Driven Acquisitions (PDA) model, the software does anonymously keep track of the productions of interest to the WSU audience so that Libraries automatically 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 the continued funding the production to ensure it will always be available for you.
