Faculty: Please use the following decision-tree to find streaming video for online classroom environments
Last updated September 23, 2020
If you have any questions, please contact your library liaison or email the Scholarly Communication Librarian, Jennifer Townes, at email@example.com.
1. Search Kanopy, AVON, and Films on Demand
The Library provides faculty with streaming video options for your online courses. Check out the plethora of options already available to you and your students in our Films on Demand and AVON databases, as well as Kanopy options. See the Library’s streaming video guide to learn how you can link to these films in your online courses.
AVON: search for the film at https://video.alexanderstreet.com/, you may need to log in by selecting Georgia College and entering your Unify credentials.
Films on Demand: Search the Films on Demand database through Galileo.
Kanopy: please submit a request form from the Kanopy site (search for the title, click “Request Access”).
Work with your library liaison to embed videos into D2L or to add them to your course reserves.
2. Search Other Sources
If your title isn’t available in Kanopy, Films on Demand, AVON, or a commercial streaming service, contact your library liaison to determine if the Library can acquire streaming access from another provider. If so, your liaison will provide you with access instructions. Note that this option is budget-dependent. We may be able to purchase streaming access for additional media, but it does take time to finalize a streaming license, and institutional streaming costs do often exceed our budget constraints.
3. Converting from DVDs
In very specific cases, excerpting small portions of DVDs via screen capture software may be allowed for use in certain educational settings. However, the Library is unable to offer this service at this time.

Credo modules use the following to interactively deliver instruction to students:
