TV Player on Moodle

Kicking Television by dhammza
Looking for TV programmes relevant to the subjects you are studying?  Then look no further.  You can watch TV programmes on college computers via the TV Player.  Programmes on the TV Player have been specifically chosen by your teachers and there are 100s to choose from covering almost all subject areas.

To access the TV Player, log onto Moodle, select your subject area and the TV Player search box will be on the right hand side of the screen.

Ask you teacher what programmes are available and what they recommend or just search the TV Player and start watching!
