What are Streaming Video Services?

Streaming video services are becoming increasing popular in universities and academic libraries.  With collections curated by vendors and catered to an academic audience, streaming videos are a great educational tool!

Streaming videos give you the freedom to:

  • save class time - flip the classroom and assign films outside of class
  • embed films directly into Canvas
  • create custom clips and playlists 
  • watch videos anywhere, anytime, on almost any device
  • host movie nights with public performance rights (Kanopy films only)

What will Academic Streaming look like at Cedarville?

The Library will license films on a title-by-title basis as requested by faculty. Therefore the collection of streaming films available to the Cedarville community will vary by academic year. We are not opening the entire collections of Kanopy and Swank movies to our students due to cost and content considerations.

Streaming Video Policy at Cedarville

Streaming video licensing is intended to provide an option for faculty members to make video content available to students enrolled in courses they are teaching. All licensing requests will be reviewed by the Director of Collection Services who will notify the requestor when approval is granted.  Licensing requests by students will normally not be granted, but library staff will be available to assist students in locating copies of videos to borrow and/or view.
