Films on Demand is now available to all Los Rios students and faculty! This database provides over 20,000 videos that can be streamed in full or clip-by-clip. You’ll find the link you need on the Research Databases page.
Films on Demand features videos from many top producers of educational video content, including PBS, the BBC, NOVA, and Frontline.
You’ll also find Films on Demand titles while using OneSearch; however, what is listed in OneSearch may be slightly out of date, so for the best selection we recommend going directly to the Films on Demand website and searching there.
We expect that one of the primary ways Films on Demand will be used is instructors assigning films or clips in classes. You’ll be able to do so by posting links to the program, using the Record URL found on the program’s page (not the search results page).
Even easier, in D2L and Canvas you can insert clips into your courses without leaving your course shell. More info will be coming on that score from Distance Ed and Instructional Development. For now, take a look at the vendor’s quick start guide, which has good info on creating a personal account to create folders you can share with students.
