Off-Campus Access: Streaming Video

This guide will help you locate information resources on online teaching and troubleshoot common issues with access to library resources from off-campus.


Streaming Content at HPU

High Point University Libraries have subscriptions to streaming resources such as Films for Humanities & Sciences, Digital Theatre Plus, and Swank Digital Campus. Educators and students can use streaming videos from free web sources such as Discovery, TED talks, Frontline, PBS, BBC, and many more.  

Educators can also record themselves or their computer screens and stream these lessons or presentations on blackboard or other online resources. 

Video Streaming Subscriptions

Digital Clip Creation

The Media and Digital Services Librarian at Smith Library can assist you with creating digital clips to embed in your courses so that students can watch only select parts of a streaming video.

Embedding Video

Embed video means to embed, or place, a video within the HTML code of the page you are posting on. 

Educators and students can embed many streaming videos from the Internet into many different formats, including:

  • Blackboard
  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Websites
  • Wordpress
  • LibGuides

To embed videos, simply look for the embed option found at the bottom of many streaming videos.  Once you see the embed code, you can copy and paste this code into blogs, Blackboard, PowerPoint, and more.  

Here is an example of what embed code looks like:
