Films from both Alexander Street Press and Films on Demand should be linked rather than embedded in Canvas. There are 2 ways to link to these videos:
If a video is not included in one of our streaming collections and we own the DVD, we may be able to create a fair use clip that can be put into Canvas. Canvas provides a password-protected environment to allow posting of video materials for enrolled students, as long as Fair Use practices are followed (typically this means posting excerpts rather than whole videos).
To request a clip of a DVD, faculty should fill out the Library Reserves Request form. We will digitize the DVD and send you a link and instructions on how to create the clip and add it to your Canvas course.
