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)

  • Click on "Add an Activity or Resource."
  • Scroll down to Resources, then click "Page," "Add."
  • In General, add a name (required) and description (optional).
  • In Content click the first button, with the arrow pointing down. This opens more buttons. Click on the button for HTML, which displays these symbols: </>
  • Paste the embed code into this box. Click "save and display" to see the video appear.
  • When you click "Save and return to course" your students will see a simple link. Clicking this link will open a separate page in which they can watch the video.
