Annenberg/ CPB Video on Demand

 Wiscnet  has  partnered with the Annenberg / CPB Foundation and UW Madison DoIT Streaming Media Services to make Annenberg's Video On Demand (VOD) courses available to you direct from your WiscNet network! Annenberg makes a large number of high quality VOD teacher resources available to the public from their web site at  The VOD courses take the form of Microsoft Windows Media Player streaming videos.

Annenberg has worked with a number of local, regional and state networks to create local content mirrors. The way their setup works is that when you select a VOD course to view from the Annenberg site ( ), their site detects that you are on the WiscNet network and redirects your request to the WiscNet content mirror. You then receive the video stream you selected from WiscNet's content mirror.

The benefit to you of WiscNet hosting an Annenberg content is that when you view an Annenberg VOD course your stream is coming to you directly from the WiscNet backbone, NOT from the Internet!

Access the Annenberg VOD courses externally.
