Resources for Teaching Online

This guide offers videos, links, and literature to help HC faculty incorporate library resources in their Blackboard courses. It also provides information about other useful software to enhance the online learning experience.

Content

‚ÄčAcademic Video Online is the most comprehensive video subscription available to libraries. It delivers more than 67,000 titles spanning the widest range of subject areas including anthropology, business, counseling, film, health, history, music, and more.

More than 14,000 titles are exclusive to Alexander Street, all with a predictable annual cost.

Academic Video Online includes a variety of video material available with curricular relevance: documentaries, interviews, feature films, performances, news programs and newsreels, demonstrations, and raw footage. Patrons will find thousands of award-winning films, including Academy®, Emmy®, and Peabody® winners. Academic institutions will find the most frequently used films for classroom instruction, plus newly released films and previously unavailable archival material.

Link and Embedding Best Practices

Alexander Street supports standard linking to content using Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) launch URLs. With LTI your instructors can more easily embed links to content and users can access the content using their credentials on the learning management system.

With LTI there is no need to add proxy prefixes to the content page request and no need for the user to sign into the proxy. Simply use a provided LTI launch URL and paste it into the course page on your LMS.  

From the Share menu at the top of the interface, you will be given an option to embed:
