Persistent Linking Instructions for Kanopy Videos

Follow these steps to create persistent links to videos in the Kanopy video playlist:

Start at the A-Z Databases page (or the Videos page):

  1. Open the Kanopy playlist. This is a very small collection of 6 videos.
  2. Find a video to view.
  3. Click on the video's graphic to pull up the player.
  4. Copy the link from behind the Share button. Select either Share (persistent URL only) or Embed (<iframe> code with player). The remote access proxy info is already embedded in the URL.

Then go to your Canvas shell: 

  • Within a text editor box, paste the persistent Share URL or Embed code, OR
  • Within a Module, create a new External Link and paste in the persistent URL. Make sure to check the box for the Load in a new tab option. Why?
