Video Streaming Databases

About Video Streaming

Video Streaming is a new service offered by CNC. The videos available from the following streaming databases include academic content that is specific to individual databases. While some databases have broad based content that covers multiple areas like Health Care, Business, or Dental Hygiene others are specific to one genre. The Curio Database listed below contains material largely from the CBC including documentaries, television broadcasts, and Canadian Content.

There will be additional databases added in the coming months/years as demand for the material broadens. Instructors and students are welcome to use the material 24/7 at home or in class as needs arise. You can use your CNC login-id and password to access the material from outside the college.
