Why use streaming video?

NOVA libraries provide access to streaming video through subscription databases and individual film licenses, where available. 

  • You can place a link to a film in your Canvas course for students to view in or out of class.
  • All films are accessible on and off campus.
  • All films have captions and/or a transcript.
  • Some databases allow you to create custom clips/segments for your classes.
