According to a 2012 Ithaka study, 80 percent of faculty in the humanities and 70 percent in social sciences use video, film, and non-textual resources for teaching undergraduates. Streaming video is not simply an accommodation to distance learners; rather, it's an expectation for the curriculum, and a valuable tool for teaching critical thinking skills, analysis, and the use of primary sources. This issue of Library Technology Reports will help you recommend high-quality video resources for faculty and researchers, with information on:

  • 75 YouTube channels for teaching, learning and research
  • 11 interdisciplinary video and multimedia sites with annotations on features and  content
  • 6 open access course collections
  • 5 university channels and collections
