Special Issue: Webcasts
There are lots of webcasts and other free AV resources on the net, and more are added each day. As an introduction, we've identified two excellent resources, The Annenberg Channel and The Library of Congress, which cover a variety of H. E. relevant webcasts on all subject fields.
Since there are so many webcasts available, you may want to search on an as-needed basis for specific topics. We’ve included instructions for searching on your own with a reminder to contact a Reference Librarian if you’re not easily finding what you need. Hopefully, we can help you find a webcast that’s a perfect fit with what you need. Don’t be shy, we love a challenge!
(NOTE: The term webcast may refer to either audio or audio/video resources. This communiqué focuses on audio/video webcasts.)
Extraordinary range of professional development & instructional programs. Search by discipline & grade level.
BE AWARE: Users need to create a free account in order to login.
100s of webcasts. Browse by subject or conduct a word search within the collection.
Searching for FREE Webcasts
There are so many resources on the web that it might be useful to search on an as-needed basis for specific materials.
Free webcasts appropriate for educational use are often available through:
You could use these basic guidelines for searching Google, or just contact a reference librarian to help you locate what you need.
Either use Google’s Advanced Search to set limits on your searches (like phrase searching and domain name restrictions), or use the guidelines below to set the same limits in the Basic Search mode.
● To exclude commercial sites
There are a few ways to do this. Use any of the following to exclude .com sites or to limit to only . edu or .org or . gov sites:
● To designate a phrase, use quotation marks
● Throw in a term that describes the media type you’re looking for – try them alone or in combination:
● If needed, link all your search terms together with AND, OR, or NOT
(Google assumes an AND between terms if OR or NOT are not specified.)
● Try several different searches
You will get different results each time. There is currently no standardized terminology for AV media on the web, so something one site calls a podcast, another site might call streaming audio or online broadcast or listen live, etc., etc.
● Don’t get frustrated!
If you don’t find what you’re looking for in a timely manner, consult with a librarian at your earliest convenience. Hopefully, we can find what you need for you or show you how to find it. Contact us with your questions. We enjoy a challenge!
