This curated collection of 29 streaming documentaries aims to present “under-reported stories of human rights and environmental protection issues in Asia and North America.” In addition to covering a variety of subjects, each documentary is accompanied by a teaching guide, created by the same faculty responsible for curating the collection (Whittier, Yale, Brandeis and NYU Shanghai).

Other highlights of this particular collection include:

  • Ability to integrate content into Blackboard or provide permalinks
  • Ability to create playlists and clips
  • Closed captioning (for most titles)
  • Synchronized transcripts
  • Video markups for class presentations
  • New content added periodically

Please note that licensing of this collection covers use in-class and for other closed-campus events. These films cannot be shown or advertised outside the OWU learning community. To learn more about using this new collection, visit the Docuseek2 Help wiki. For more about providing links or integrating content into Blackboard, visit the Integrating Docuseek2 wiki.
