Kanopy, a streaming video resource offering full-length, institutional access to high-quality feature films and documentaries. Kanopy enables users to stream full-length films, as well as create clips of movies to incorporate into presentations, course websites, and student assignments.
Instructions for how to:
Link to full-length videos for off-campus access:
On the video's page, copy the URL of the video from the address bar at the top of your browser and paste it into an email or website. Off-campus users will automatically be directed to login to our campus proxy to access the full site.
A persistent URL for Kanopy should look something like this:
Video tutorial demonstrating how to add link to Kanopy video within Moodle. With this option, students leave Moodle to go to the Kanopy site to view the video. This may be helpful if you want the students to use the video as part of an assignment, for example, making clips, or playlists, as they can take advantage of all the clip-making tools from Kanopy.
Video tutorial demonstrating how to embed a Kanopy video into Moodle. With this option, students stay within Moodle to view the video. This allows them to view the video in full screen, but does not give them any other options. If you simply want them to view the video, this is probably enough.
Ways to use Kanopy both in and out of the classroom:
Stream clips or full length films in the classroom
Link to or embed films in course website
Create assignments for a specific film, requiring students to analyze or interpret by watching film on their own.
Finding examples of bias in a documentary
Demonstrating lighting/filmmaking principles
Have students create clips to incorporate into assignments or presentations
As a new teaching resource, we invite you to come up with more ways to utilize video within your courses and hope you will share your experiences with us in return so we can make more informed decisions regarding streaming video access in the future.
