Films on Demand (FMG)

Films on Demand

A comprehensive collection of high-quality educational videos licensed from a long-established educational media distributor.  Thousands of videos cover a wide range of topics organized into multiple broad subjects. These subjects are then further divided into narrower subjects.  Individual segments subdivide each video into discrete shorter units.

Finding Videos

In addition to the search interface which allows searching by title, or by keywords in segments, browsing is available by subject area or producer.  Most of the titles in this collection also have records in the ASU Library online catalog.

Creating a My Films Account

Creating a ‘My Films’ Account allows much more flexibility and functionality as well as maintaining personal preferences, such as Saved Searches, Playlists, and Closed Caption Settings.

Closed Captioning and Transcripts

Nearly all titles in the collection have closed-captioning.  Toggle on/off closed captioning using the CC symbol in the lower right corner of the video player window.  Most titles in Films on Demand have accompanying scrolling transcripts displayed in a sidebar to the video window.  

Linking to Other Resources

All titles in this collection have a distinct Playlist URL for linking in syllabi, course management shells (Blackboard), syllabi, or other web pages. For instructions on how to link to videos from this collection within Blackboard or other course management systems see the Linking tab.

Troubleshooting

If you are unable to access a video, contact Library Systems Support. Please indicate the specific video you are unable to access, and include information on your operating platform/device (Mac, PC, tablet, etc.) and browser.

Using third-party software to capture these video streams for playback outside of the Films on Demand interface is illegal and violates the ASU Library license for these videos.
