- Display Note: Abstract: The University of North Texas began substantially increasing its online course offerings in the late 1990's. Students, faculty, and librarians realized that access to online resources would be crucial to the success of these courses. An infrastructure for managing remote access to electronic journals and databases was already established by the libraries, but a plan was not in place to address the use of audiovisual materials in online courses. When the heavily film-based anthropology course "ANTH 2100: World Cultures Through Film" transitioned from a face-to-face classroom to an online environment, it served as a catalyst for developing a plan to provide distance education students online access to media.
