Streaming Guide: CANVAS
This guide will provide information about and resources for streamed video at Hodges Library
CANVAS allows instructors to add links to Library licensed videos to a class on the class' CANVAS site.
See instructions to the right. The Library licenses over 100,000 video streaming titles and newsreels. Please go to our Video Streaming Collections page to see all of our video streaming collections.
You can also search the Library catalog for video streaming titles, just as you would a book. You can then limit the search to Resource Type - "Streaming Media" using the Facets on the left to take away all results except for steaming video and audio.
