Study Tips & Tricks

(Streaming) video killed the DVD star?

Perhaps not, but the functionality and availability of streaming video is increasing. QUT staff and students in CI, Health, & Education already have access to key streaming video collections.

Theatre in Video – view entire stage productions or documentaries online. There are a range of productions from twentieth century theatre history, multiple versions of classic texts for comparison, not to mention famous faces (e.g. Blythe Danner in The Seagull or Derek Jacobi and John Gielgud in Richard II.)

Education in Video – is still growing, but it already has 77 hours of online video, which includes footage of students and teachers in actual classrooms.  You can browse key educational topics such as technology, learning styles, and literacy.

 Counselling and Therapy in Video – video resources for social work, psychotherapy, psychology, and psychiatric counselling. Like the other Alexander Street Press collections listed above, there are free online help resources available.

TV News – provides desktop access to ABC and SBS news stories, current affairs, as well as documentaries. The search is particularly useful for monitoring current affairs or a particular topic in the media.
