Endgame: Ethics and Values in America

This module enables viewers to enter the lives of fictional characters forced to make critical decisions with profound moral, ethical or social implications. The module fuses dramatic film, interactivity on the Web, sync-to-broadcast technology, and the energy of live television with a studio audience. Viewers are encouraged to confront those gray areas of human experience where serious moral and ethical choices are made. This would make a good and lively debate possible for an ethics class.

I couldn't use the video either. Looks like it would be very useful.

This is a web-based video that is played in two parts. I utilized this video case in a Business Ethics class. Although, the video case has nothing to do with "business" ethics, the subject matter evoked quite a bit of discussion almong the students. The subject matter was also conducive to diverse backgrounds in the clasroom, since not everyone has the same experience with ethics. The website offers the video, questions between the two parts of the video that I used for discussion, a method to enter a class decision and comments from both the characters and experts in the ethics area. It took approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes to get through this project. My students really enjoyed it and I plan to use it in future classes.
