Films and Audiovisual Resources: Introduction to Streaming Services at Hostos Library

FAQs and Recommendations for the Best Streaming Experience for Educators

SHOWING FILMS

  • When showing a video in class, give students a direct link to the video instead of "sharing your screen" while doing a Zoom session as there are less technical difficulties this way. Links can be posted in Blackboard, in the chat box on Blackboard or Zoom.
  • To prevent technical difficulties, always check with your students to see how they plan to view the video. Are they using laptops, cellphones, tablets, etc? 
  • Always have a backup plan if technical difficulties prevent the screening of the planned video or film.
