Swank DVD Streaming (New!)

Swank K12 Streaming provides streaming access to feature films and documentaries for educational use. You can easily find and stream movies in the classroom, or you can assign to students for viewing outside of class. Think of it as our shelves of DVDs, but online!


Teacher Portal URL: https://digitalcampus.swankmp.net/rshs377311


Please note that this Portal link should not be shared with students as they do not have access to your main library of movies, only those that have been assigned to them; sending students your main portal link will result in them receiving an error message. Also, due to licensing, we are unable to share the screen over Zoom. Virtual students will only see a dark screen. But, sharing the direct film link with them will work.


These Video Tutorials will help you get started and walk you through the streaming platform. They will also provide a visual of what you will have access to- specifically how to search, request and assign movie. I also made a tutorial for you.
