Films from both Alexander Street Press and Films on Demand should be linked rather than embedded in Canvas. Embedding films from these platforms will cause an error 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.
