The GU-Q Library contains a large collection of streaming media you can use in your classes. In order to find online documentaries, films, and educational videos in HoyaSearch, follow the steps below:
To share the link to the video with your students, copy the permalink as shown below. To embed a video to your Canvas course pages, contact your Personal Librarian.
If you can't find the video you are looking for in the GUQ Library collection, you can suggest a purchase using the online form.
When streaming content is not available through HoyaSearch it is possible to use Georgetown University's streaming media service - Sharestream.
It's possible to stream content within a Canvas course. If content is available in Sharestream, a few steps must be taken to get the media added into Canvas.
Step 1: Enable ShareStream Media Manager Menu Option
Media Manager is primarily used as an interface for faculty to organize ShareStream media files. It can be used to copy media from one course to another and upload new media files too. Also, it can be used to playback media.
See the UIS guide on How to Add Sharestream to a Canvas Course Menu for additional details about completing step 1.
Step 2: Contact the Library about the Media you want added
The library provides support to help add media content to a Canvas course if the media content is available. Contact the library and provide details about the content needed for the course. The library will search for the content and provide feedback on its availability for streaming in Canvas.
