FGCU Video Databases

We have several streamed video collections at FGCU!  Many of these include unique features that make it easy to link from CANVAS. 

Videos can be viewed anywhere you have an internet connection with a valid FGCU I.D.

For example,  Academic Video Online will provide links to individual films that can be put into syllabi,Canvas, or even SMS texted to mobile devices. Videos should be viewable on Android OS or Apple iPhone devices, and will typically require a wi-fi connection for the best viewing experience.  By creating a free account, you can create personalized playlists of entire films, clips, notes, or other web content.  You can also create your own clips of films to be saved and shared.
