The Alexander Street Press package provides streamed access to nearly 20,000 videos in 20 disciplines.
Disciplines include: art, architecture, business, counseling and therapy, dance, economics, education, ethnic studies, ethnography, gay and lesbian studies, health, history, humanities, law and public safety, literature, opera, philosophy, political science, psychology, religion, science, theatre, and women’s studies.
Many of the films will allow you to track the screen image with print transcripts or to create online clips. Some even come with downloadable, supplemental study guides.
Alexander Street Press has created two easy to use video tutorials. VAST: Academic Video Online demonstrates the basic interface search features and introduces you to the creation of video clips and playlists which can be emailed, shared with groups or embedded into Blackboard or electronic coursepacks.
Creating Clips and Playlists provides further detail as well as instructions on sharing streaming content from sources such as Youtube.
