Add Streaming Video To Your Courses With FMG On Demand

The Cheng Library has recently purchased 120 films from FMG On Demand, a major vendor of high-quality video designed for use in academic settings. The films are accessible in streaming format and can be presented in their entirety, or in preset or customized segments. Using videos from our collection, faculty can build a set of video segments for use throughout a course. If you are using BlackBoard, FMG On Demand provides an easy three-step process to integrate digital video into your learning environment.

The Cheng Library will be offering two hands-on training sessions in March to help you take advantage of these resources. You'll create your own FMG On Demand account and learn how to create custom playlists which can be incorporated into your courses using Blackboard or a web page. The sessions will be held in the Library Instruction Classroom (Room L-01) on:
  • Tuesday, March 6, 2007, 12:30-1:45 pm
  • Thursday, March 29, 2007, 12:30 - 1:45 pm
