ANT 210 - Downtown (James-Hernandez) Cultural Anthropology: Streaming Videos

Online videos?

Why use videos?

Educational videos can be a great source of information.  In addition, you can add them to your presentations as an additional way of presenting information.

These videos work like YouTube, but they are professionally produced and cover academic topics.

One great feature: Each video is divided into chapters or segments.  You can zero-in on what you want.

PowerPoint: Streaming Video LINK

IMPORTANT: If you want to include a streaming video segment in your PowerPoint 2010 presentation, it is best to LINK to the segment, rather than embed it. Linking to the video is simpler, quicker, saves space, and allows you to show the video anywhere, anytime. See the attached step-by-step directions!
