Two streaming video databases are available to Sauder School instructors for use in preparing courses.
Films on Demand is a multidisciplinary database of videos on various topics including business.
Instructors can create playlists, easily clip segments from longer videos, embed those segments in Connect, show segments in class, create persistent links, etc.
VAST is Alexander Street’s flagship video subscription, covering a wide range of subject areas including business. VAST is growing to more than 20,000 full video titles (not just clips) in 2013 and currently offers well over 9,000 hours of content. It includes documentaries, interviews, performances, news programs and newsreels, field recordings, commercials, and raw footage. You’ll find thousands of award-winning films, including Academy® and Emmy® winners, the most frequently used films for classroom instruction, newly released films, and archival material previously unavailable.
UBC has a year-long trial to this product, which allows instructors to perform all of the functions listed for Films on Demand.
