Recently, we were informed that the videos are no longer available on the site. I see if you could help us figure out why not or what happened. The site is: https://teachingimmigration.commons.gc.cuny.edu
We were recently contacted by another GC student who wanted to use the materials in the classroom, but could not access the videos."
Are these videos gone because of the lack of captions? What can be done? Let me know if you need more information. Thanks!

At least some of the videos are hosted on YouTube and embedded into the Commons using http:// rather than https:// addresses. This means that most browsers won't let them load, for security reasons. For example, I've changed the YouTube link to HTTPS on this post, and the video is now loading: https://teachingimmigration.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2014/09/18/filipino-chinese-or-chinese-filipino-interethnic-asian-america/
If there are other videos that should be appearing that cannot be fixed in this way, please give me specific URLs and I can take a closer look.
