Films on Demand Streaming Video Collections

Business & Economics, Careers & Job Search
This is a collection of streaming video (Films on Demand) offering content from the Film Media Group, who’s most popular titles are under the Films for the Humanities & Sciences label.  Currently, we have access to the Business & Economics titles and the Careers & Job Search titles.  There are over 800 titles in these two collections.  The length of each film varies from 7 minutes to under 1 hour.
The interface, which is linked from our databases page (under “F” for Films On Demand) allows JWU faculty, staff and students access to these educational videos anytime, and anywhere there is a computer with access to the internet.  We are exited that JWU faculty will be able to utilize these online videos, both in their classrooms and for their assignments.
You can search for videos by subject or keyword.  The advanced search gives you more control for your search, lets you limit your search by date, and you can limit to titles with closed-caption.  You can also browse the collection by using the subject terms in the sidebar on the left, and you can create your own personal folders and playlists for videos that you will frequently use.  You can even create custom segments that show specific sections of the videos you wish to use.
To access the Films On Demand videos, go to the Databases section of our site, and scroll down to “F” in the alphabetical listings.Business & Economics, Careers & Job Search
