Recent developments in digital rights enablement for video, plus inexpensive purpose-built applications such as the Media on Demand system, are now adding video to the montage of rich media objects for learning online. Video libraries and repositories can be customized and stored on local servers for access by place-based or distance learners as was not possible with analog video. It is time for educators to explore the new possibilities of video as a dynamic, interactive resource. The old paradigm of clumsily using the thumbs on the remote to manipulate the VCR is quickly evolving into new on-demand learning communities where the fingers do the dancing with the mouse and keyboard. This article offers a brief overview, or perhaps a practitioners' alert, about what can be expected from video once it has been transferred from the library shelves to the servers.
