Environmental Sciences Films

Documentaries available for classes, Emory clubs, and personal viewing.

Streaming in Class

For "in-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.

However, to reduce the likelihood of technical problems during class time, allow the students 1-3 days to view the film independently and faculty lead the discussion during class time. 

Contact Kristan for a permalink if it is not available. 

Streaming Rules

Yes, we do have online documentaries. You can explore Kanopy for more or you can request a purchase.

Streaming video can NOT be used for public film showings. If you are planning a film series, please contact your librarian about purchasing a DVD with public performance rights.
