Kanopy is a streaming video platform that hosts an award-winning collection of more than 15,000 films including films from the Criterion Collection, PBS, Kino Lorber, California Newsreel, and hundreds of other leading producers. You can create clips or teaching playlists and embed them in your courses in Canvas.
All films available on the Kanopy platform include classroom and public performance rights, as long as no admission fee is charged.
You can easily share or embed any Kanopy film (or clip or playlist you create) through the sharing tools below the film. "Embedding" a film means that you embed the whole video player into another website (a website, course management system, blog, etc) so that the film appears and can be watched there as opposed to having to click on a separate link to the film.
