The collection consists of 78 high quality titles, including the very popular <a href="http://uncw.kanopystreaming.com/node/41634"><em>Killing Us Softly </em></a>series, <a href="http://uncw.kanopystreaming.com/node/84405"><em>Dreamworlds 3</em></a>, and the newly released <a href="http://uncw.kanopystreaming.com/node/93038">Tough Guise 2</a>.

MEF is hosted by Kanopy Streaming.</p> <p>The interface allows you to stream the films in the classroom, and students and faculty can easily access the films from dorms or off-campus by signing in through University of North Carolina Wilmington&#39;s proxy server. All of the titles in the collection have unique URLs, which can be embedded in Blackboard or linked to from syllabi and web pages.</p> <p>The playback function on the site will automatically adjust the stream based on the speed of the Internet connection of the user, to give the user the best quality stream possible. The platform can be accessed on mobile devices, including tablets and smart phones, and the video player supports IOS for Apple mobile devices.</p> <p>For those of you who want to use shorter clips of the films, there is a clip editing and playlist creation function. These shorter clips, and playlists, can be shared with students via e-mail or embedded in Blackboard. <a href="http://uncw.kanopystreaming.com/sites/default/files/manuals/Kanopy_Clip_Making_and_Playlist_Instructions.pdf">Learn more about creating clips and playlists</a>.</p> <p>Several of the films in the collection have toggle on/off captioning and scrolling, as well as interactive transcripts.
