Using Streaming Video for Instruction
Pfau Library has hundreds of streaming videos available in its databases. All are available for instructors to use in support of their teaching! Students can watch them anytime, anywhere.
Things you can typically do with our streaming videos:
- Link to a single video
- Link to a playlist of videos that you created
- Link or embed a "clip" or portion of a video that you selected
To enable your students to access the video from off-campus, you must include the library's proxy prefix as part of the video link.
