Kanopy Streaming Video Delivers Digital Scholarly Resources

University of Houston Libraries provides a streaming video service to UH faculty and others who want to incorporate more digital scholarly resources in the curriculum.



Kanopy is a streaming video resource offering a collection of over 21,000 documentaries and movies on a broad range of subjects, and from leading producers such as Criterion Collection, The Great Courses, New Day Films, HBO California Newsreel, and more. Kanopy makes it easy to watch, share and discuss videos both in and out of the classroom.

The streaming video service offers greater flexibility in academics and research. Faculty have the option of embedding video links within Blackboard, and students benefit from the ability to access educational materials instantly from any location.

The top 5 videos accessed via Kanopy at UH from September 2017 through May 2018, based on number of plays, are:

  • Moral Dilemmas…Can Ethics Help? (724 plays)
  • Place Matters (419)
  • Race – The Power of an Illusion (380)
  • Including Samuel (243)
  • In Sickness and in Wealth (200)

To learn more about using Kanopy to deliver educational content, faculty and students may contact their subject librarian.
