Video Support for Faculty: Films on Demand

What is it?

FYI - Faculty

Great source for streaming videos for use in Canvas and Library Guides.

Films on Demand utilizes a "Patron Driven Acquisitions" model called PDA.

Any video watched three times triggers a one year, $75.00 subscription paid for the library. Departmental funds are NOT affected!

Faculty are encouraged to load individual titles or segments into Canvas. 

Some titles are available for purchase. Prices vary, but $500 it typical.

Contact you liaison for assistance or use Films on Demand's Help Button for FAQs and technical advice from the vendor.
