Kanopy: Start Watching Now

University Libraries is excited to announce a new online streaming video resource, Kanopy.

kanopy_owlKanopy is a streaming video service that will provide Wright State faculty and students with access to over 26,000 videos. Videos cover a broad range of subjects in the arts and humanities, social sciences, sciences, education and business and include films from major distributors such as PBS, BBC, Criterion, and the Media Education Foundation. You can browse selections at http://wright.kanopystreaming.com.

Kanopy’s viewing platform makes it easy to watch films at your convenience whether you are on or off campus.  Many films are closed-captioned, and Kanopy is actively working on providing captions for all films on their platform.  Links to films can be embedded in course management systems and shared via social media.  Don’t need to use the entire film? Users can easily create custom clips for use in classes or in presentations.

Interested in showing a film for a club meeting or campus event?  All films on the Kanopy platform include public performance rights.  As long as you’re not charging admission, you can screen the film for your event.
