Films on Demand

"Films on Demand" are streaming video files that may be watched on your computer anywhere you have Internet service. Titles are selected by HCC faculty and library staff to support current programs of study and may be assigned as required viewing in your classes. Links to required videos may also be found in your class Moodle site.
