The University of Michigan is one of the newest institutions to adopt a service that delivers streaming video to colleges and universities. Kanopy said it has added 377 new higher ed customers for the 2015-2016 academic year. Other new customers include the University of California, San Diego; Howard University; and Dartmouth College. U Michigan’s library introduced Kanopy to its community in August. Although the service boasts 26,000 documentaries, training films and theatrical releases in its collection, U Michigan focused its announcement on 600 videos in the area of the arts. Users are able to browse videos by subject or title. They can also create playlists and video clips. Streaming can be done on a PC with Flash, a Mac, iPads, iPhones and other mobile devices. The movies can be projected in classrooms, embedded into authenticated Web pages, including learning management system courses, and watched by any number of simultaneous viewers.
