Streaming Video (for faculty): Home

So you want to assign a video in your class...

Your library has a huge catalog of streaming video to support you and your teaching! We have access to three major platforms with substantial collections:
  • Kanopy
    • Please feel free to sign up for an account at https://library.kbcc.cuny.edu/kanopy.
    • Once you've signed up, you should be able to view the catalog of films and place requests.
    • Requested films must be needed for a class.
    • Requests must come from a faculty member.
    • You must use your Kingsborough email when you sign up, or you will not get access.
    • It is recommended to NOT use the Kanopy app or mobile site, but rather use a desktop browser instead. The app and mobile site do not work well with the subscription we have.
  • Academic Video Online (AVON)
    • This collection is fully available to all Kingsborough faculty, students and staff. No need to create an account or make a special request! Streaming content is immediately available.
    • You can sign in to AVON with your CUNY ID here.
  • Swank
    • You can sign up for an account at https://library.kbcc.cuny.edu/swank.
    • Once you've signed up, you should be able to view the catalog of films and place requests.
    • Requested films must be needed for a class.
    • Requests must come from a faculty member.
    • You must use your Kingsborough email when you sign up, or you will not get access.
If you want help with a specific request, or have any other questions, please contact Mark Eaton at mark.eaton@kbcc.cuny.edu
