Streaming Media

Find UTSA-licensed, free and fee-based streaming media you can use in the classroom.

Using Streaming Media in a Course

UTSA Libraries encourages faculty to use streaming media in their courses. Because media such as films can be removed from databases by distributors at any time, we recommend faculty submit an online course reserve request for any media they plan to use in a course. This will help UTSA Libraries verify access to the content before you need to use it.

When you submit your request, you can also ask us to link the item to your course's Blackboard page.

Key Databases: UTSA Streaming Video Collections

Any film from these databases may be shown in class or linked in Blackboard. In most cases, you can create custom playlists and copy a link or embed code into Blackboard to stream video. Available to UTSA faculty, students and staff.
