About this page
This is a guide to embed a video from streaming services UD libraries has access to, Kanopy, Alexander Street, or Jove into your Canvas course.
This guide has two parts:
1. Finding the embed code on the various streaming services the library has access to.
2. Inserting the embed code into Canvas on a page or assignment.
Finding the Embed Code
Under the video player look for the Share button.
After clicking the Share button you will see two tabbed options, by default it starts on Share. Click on Embed
The code in the box will be what you need to paste into Canvas to embed the video.
Under the video player there is an EMBED button.
If your Jove video has a chapter menu, the embed button is in a different location to the left bottom part of the screen.
After clicking the embed button in either of the above Jove media player views, the same window with the embed code below will appear.
The next window will give you the option to select the code to copy or you can click the "Copy Embed Code" button to add the code to your computer's clipboard.
Under the video player look for the Embed/Link button.
In the next window copy the embed code.
Click on the SHARE tab on the menu above the streaming media player. It is boxed in green in the image above.
After clicking the SHARE tab two buttons appear below the media player. Clicking the COPY EMBED CODE button circled in green in the image above will save the code so you can paste it elsewhere.
Embedding a video in Canvas
You can add an embedded video either into a page, discussion, or assignment. When you are in edit mode look for the embed video link that is in the red box in the image below.
The embed button looks like a cloud with empty hyperlink brackets
After clicking the embed button the window below will pop up.
Paste into the text field the embed code that you found in the first section of this guide.
The embedded video will be viewable from within Canvas.
