The Libraries have thousands of streaming video and audio titles available for use in your courses.
Once you've found a video or audio title you want to use in a course, note its title and which streaming database it's contained in. Follow the instructions below to find the correct permanent link URL or embed code for your film or audio (adding the EZProxy coding via the ProxyMe widget if not already in the URL, noted below), and then add link to a content area in Canvas as needed.
In order for a persistent link to work for off-campus users, the link must include the prefix https://login.ezproxy.stthomas.edu/login?url= or the embedded code string .ezproxy.stthomas.edu/.
In some cases the code string will already be part of the persistent link, but for others you will have to add it. It is up to you to identify whether or not the code string is already there. Note for Factiva: all Factiva “share” links must be run through this Proxy Me widget in order to work.
Example of a persistent link that already includes the code:
Example of a persistent link that needs to have the Ezproxy code added:
Two of our streaming video databases, Films on Demand and Docuseek2 now allow embedded videos from within Canvas. This works easiest if you've gone to the database first and found the title of the video you want to use. To use direct linking:
