Faculty Resources For Streaming Media – Update

Since the start of the Fall Semester and the increase in online teaching, one question that has come up repeatedly from professors is: Can I stream content from my Netflix account in my classroom when I teach? 


The short answer: no

However, Netflix does make available several documentaries for educational screening. Please visit our Netflix page for more information.

Reminder: #SHU_Libraries offer several ways to stream film and video!

    • AVON ( Academic Video Online) provides a comprehensive video collection, delivering more than 66,000 titles spanning the widest range of subject areas including anthropology, business, counseling, film, health, history, music, and more.

    • Kanopy streams more than 26,000 films from the Criterion Collection, Great Courses, PBS, and hundreds of other producers. Faculty members can request films ranging from documentaries, indie and foreign films to classics and blockbuster movies.
