Streamed Video: Adding Library Streaming Media to Your Course

Resources for finding and using streamed video

Adding Library Streaming Video to Your Course

Adding Streaming to Your Canvas Course

(NOTE: The deadline for submitting streaming requests for Fall is Aug 1, for Spring is Nov 1, for Summer is Apr 1)

Links from the library streaming service as well as the databases can be placed in your Canvas Courses.

For items that are streamed through the library streaming service, simply copy and paste the link in your course.


For library databases like Films on Demand or Kanopy streaming, you can copy and paste the link, but you can also use an embedded link, which means the item will stream inside Canvas, not link to an outside source.


For assistance with providing streaming media in your Canvas course, please contact Teaching and Learning Technologies (TLT) and they can help you.
