Streaming in Class: Best Practices

Emory subscribes to or purchases many streaming films and documentaries. You can find most titles in Library Search or browse our academic streaming sites.

For classroom screenings conducted via Zoom faculty should share permalinks with students either via videoconference chat or your courses' Canvas site. Students should watch on their own screens in a separate window and with their Zoom audio muted, and then return to the main meeting for discussion, analysis, etc.

To reduce the likelihood of technical problems during class time, viewing online documentaries is best used as a homework assignment.  Allow the students 1-3 days to view the film independently. Then, faculty can lead the discussion during class time.

Contact Kristan for a permalink if it is not available.
