FDC: Audio & Video


More and more faculty members on our campus are adding media content to their courses. Many times, streaming audio and video to your students' computers is the best solution to achieve your goals.

Streamed files are not downloaded to the user's computer, therefore they do not clog the end user's machine. They are being played on the server. Sound quality is good, especially if you are using external speakers on your computer or headphones, video quality is acceptable for some purposes. Please click on the samples below to hear and view streamed files to judge the quality.
