While you can link and embed Films on Demand and Alexander Street videos in Canvas, embedding has some advantages over linking.
An important note about embedding:
Embeds will only work when they are initiated through the Canvas external tool feature. This page includes print and video instructions for this process. Copying the embed code directly from the databases and pasting it into Canvas will not work.
We are excited to announce that Films on Demand and Alexander Street are now integrated with Canvas. Our Films on Demand collection includes over 40,000 videos and covers a wide variety of disciplines. And, we currently subscribe Counseling and Therapy in Video collections by Alexander Street, providing access to over 70,000 streaming videos. And, now you can search, select, and embed these videos from within Canvas. Plus, your students will be able to view them without an additional log-in. All they have to do is click play, just like they do for a YouTube video. Below, you can access instructions in pdf or video format.
