Using MPC Library materials in Canvas: Kanopy

Linking to Kanopy films

Unfortunately using the Embed code from Kanopy sometimes doesn't work well in Canvas. If you do Embed a film from Kanopy make sure to also give a link to make sure that students can access the film.

Linking to Kanopy Videos in Canvas

1. Take the link to Kanopy from the Library's Database page
2. Find the movie that you want your students to watch and click on it
3. From the page where you can watch the movie click on "Share" and then copy the link that is given to you:

4. Use that link in your Canvas site.

When your students click on the link to the movie from off-campus they'll see this message:

They will need to click on "Connect Now" and they'll be prompted for their Lobo Account (same username and password they use to get into Lobo Apps/Canvas):

No other steps are needed. Please contact Glenn Tozier if you run into any issues.
