University of Tampere has access to two video databases, Academic Video Online: Premium and Ideas Roadshow.
Academic Video Online: Premium delivers more than 60 000 videos from 1 500 leading distributors covering all disciplines and subject areas. Essential subject areas includes anthropology, business, counseling, film, health, history, music, and more.
The database includes a variety of video material available with curricular relevance: documentaries, interviews, performances, news programs and newsreels, field recordings, commercials, and raw footage. Academic institutions will find the most frequently used films for classroom instruction, plus newly released films and previously unavailable archival material.
More than 14 000 learning segments make it easy for instructors to find and integrate specific video content into the classroom and help users get to the right content faster. Each segment is fully searchable and includes an abstract, making user selection even easier.
