You can easily share any SWANK film through the sharing tools below the film. There are 2 ways to do this. By using a Direct Link or a LMS Link. 


Once you click on a film in SWANK, you will notice a buttons "Copy Direct Link" or "Copy LMS Link," below the film.

  • When adding to Canvas be sure that the link opens in a new tab or an error message will occur.
  • Add as an external URL and click the check box for opening in a new tab
  • This method works well when creating Modules

  • Open your Canvas course.
  • Click Pages, then Add Pages.
  • Click the HTML Editor button.
