TSC is a good resource for videos. This is not an all inclusive site for instructors, but the library provides a sufficient sample of relevant clips and films for lower and upper division courses. Videos from this site may serve as a good ice breaker for beginning a class or introducing a topic. There are links to well produced, professional videos as well as amateur creations from YouTube. The summaries of each video provided on the site are helpful and explain its relevance within the discipline.

Useful repository of video resources, generally catalogued into possible topic categories.  Resource synopses provide an accurate summary of the resource, and frequently identify key discussion points and possible learning activities.

Technical Remarks:

.- Some video clips are not available as on-line resources.

.- Not all clips are tagged with warnings about possibly offensive language (preview is advisable).

-. Public performance implications for each resource will need to be determined by instructor before determining best route to introduce students to the material.

This is an outstanding collection of sociological cinema teaching sociology through video. I have used some of the videos in my online courses. There are numerous resources including a link where you can submit a video.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the videos show no online access.
