Quick Tip #2: Embedding The Stranger Kanopy Video into Canvas

Paste the Film Code into a New "Announcement" on Canvas

Step One

  • We need a page in Canvas that has the Rich Text Content Editor. 
  • "Announcements" is one such place. 
  • So we create a new announcement for the film "The Stranger."

Step Two

  • We should be able to embed the "Embed" code for The Stranger under the cloud icon. 
  • However, today, June 4, 2021, this feature is not working (at least for me).
  • So, we have a Plan B:
    • We will to to the chain link icon and paste in the "Share Link" for The Stranger:


  • This is what your page will look like:
    • Notice that with the "Share Link," you will not see the image of the film.

Step Three: SAVE



  • This is a critical step. 
  • If you have problems opening the video, re-check to make sure you completed this step.
