Annenberg CPB Videos Available for Free Viewing

April 2, 2013

In the process of deciding which of the library’s VHS tapes to replace with DVDs, I was introduced by Sara Crump to http://www.learner.org which hosts the Annenberg CPB series. If you don’t know about these video sets, take some time to look them up.

Nine series are owned by the library and five are among our most heavily used videos.
• Voices & visions which explores the work of 13 poets, including Hart Crane, Langston Hughes and Sylvia Plath;
• Discovering psychology
• Against all odds : inside statistics
• Planet Earth
• Unseen life on earth : an introduction to microbiology
Economics U$A, originally made thirty years ago, was updated in 2012 as were Ethics in America and Discovering psychology.

A caution: most of the series are available via video streaming and may be used for free in classrooms using “a regular computer screen or projection screen.” (from their FAQ) You can even link to them from your website, but they must be licensed for use in a learning management system like Moodle.
