About this guide

The Library has a growing collection of online videos covering instructional tutorials, Australian current affairs, documentaries, drama series, feature films, and subject-specific content. These can be searched through LibrarySearch, or browse the video collections here.

Many online video collections let you build playlists, create clips, and link and embed videos in online courses and reading lists.

Unlike videos from YouTube and Vimeo, all video content in the Library online collections is licensed. You can use it in your online courses. Students can use them in assignments and presentations.

To help you make the most of these resources, we have prepared practical instructions that will show you how to link and embed videos into your Canvas course, or, preferably to include them on a reading list.

Further information about using resources in your Canvas course can be found on the Library guide: Library resources in Canvas.


Finding videos

The Library provides several resources to aid in finding videos that you can use in your Canvas course, these include:

Video - Creative Commons

Video - free licences

Stock video. No attribution is required but it is recommended for academic best practice.
