Alexander Street Press (ASP) databases allow users to create playlists of videos within the database, or clips from videos, which can be shared with others. Users can create playlists containing various types of documents, images, whole videos, tracks, segments (clips) and/or other items such as links to any URL. Playlists can be annotated, edited, copied, shared, and all playlists contain their own unique static URL which can be incorporated into course management systems, such as Sakai. Playlists can be used as lists of personal favorites, class viewing/listening assignments, or as a teaching resource for in-class use.
If you are an instructor who is interested in incorporating streaming media into your distance education courses, please explore the documentaries and programs available within the databases found on this page. These databases provide features that are helpful in distance education settings, such as the ability to share videos via Course Management Systems, create custom playlists, and utilize clip-making tools. You may also find many videos freely available using the subject area tabs above.
