The UNE Library supplies us, faculty students and staff, with a huge quantity of learning and entertainment materials. Mostly, we think of books when we think of these materials, or the vast online databases connecting us with scholarly articles from around the world. But there’s more to the library than what you can check out or download for reading.
Kanopy is a database of videos, the variety of which will surprise you. To check it out, go to the UNE library’s website and click E-Resources, then Databases, then navigate to the only database whose title begins with the letter “K.”
Kanopy’s library consists of a wide variety of streamable videos, comprising everything from old art-house films to recently released, award winning documentaries. To put a video from Kanopy into your course, simply use the share button from within the chosen video and include either the link, or if you’re familiar with the process of embedding, the embed code, into your course.
In addition to the opportunity Kanopy provides faculty for linking-to/embedding videos for their online classrooms, the database is available to students and staff for the simple pleasure of watching. Be sure to check out Kanopy when you get a chance.
