Frequently Asked Questions
How can I send my students a link for a film?
Look for the word Share. In Films on Demand and Kanopy it is below the video; in Theatre on Video it is at the top of your screen.
How can I embed a film in Moodle?
The "Share" feature also provides you with an embed code, to copy and paste it into Moodle.
It is not recommended to embed videos directly into your main Moodle page, as it can make the page slow to load. Instead, use the following directions (here is a video version)

Free/Reduced Price Streaming Films Offered During COVID-19
VideoLib's Master List : Free and reduced price offers.
As of 3/19, this list shows details on free or reduced price offers from the publishers/distributors listed below. Rather than duplicate work and risk our guide being outdated, we recommend your using the VideoLib list.
For Faculty: many educational video publishers and distributors - for example, Women Make Movies, are offering free digital access to films if libraries already own a licensed copy of a film on DVD or Blu-Ray.
To help address the increased need for streaming films, we have established a temporary account with Swank Digital Campus. Our access is LIMITED -- the account only allows access to 25 films. If you see a film on this platform (note that the platform emphasizes Hollywood films) that you would like to incorporate into your online course in the coming weeks, please ask your liaison librarian as soon as possible. We are providing these slots on a first-come, first-serve basis.
