New Database: Classroom Video on Demand

Classroom Video on Demand contains over 18,000 streaming titles in 187,000 segments (of approximately 1-5 minutes long) with transcriptions. The films include a broad spectrum of academic subjects. Approximately 40-50 titles are added each month. See the New Library Materials list each month for a link to new titles.


Access to this new database is with the single sign-on id/password: (middle / timecat). Once you have access to the database you have the option to set up a personalized account. This personal account will let you:


  • Mark favorites
  • Create playlists
  • Share playlists
  • Receive emails when specified film topics are added
  • Make custom cuts of films
  • Export custom cuts to moodle, powerpoint and other digital mediums


Remember the single sign-on id/password is: middle/timecat. Have fun watching!
