eBooks and Film Streaming: Kanopy Streaming

This guide will show you how to find books and video at the library.

Sharing Kanopy Films

Kanopy films are available to Lyon College students, staff, and faculty through the Lyon Kanopy site. To log-in, you will be sent to the authentication page and gain access with your Lyon College credentials. If faculty purchase specific films for courses, the titles are accessible to all Lyon College students, staff, and faculty. To share a link on your syllabus use the "share" option located below the film title.

Creating Clips and Playlists

When a clip or playlist is created, it has a unique URL and can be made public or kept private. The URL can be shared with others via email or otherwise, and there is a unique embed code for it as well. All clips and playlists will be saved on the platform for you under your profile, so that it is not lost and you can always revisit it (unless you manually delete the clip/playlist).  

  1. Find the video that you want to create your first clip from. You can access the Playlist and Clip Creation Tool from any video on your institution’s Video Portal by clicking the "Create Clip/Playlist" button under the video player.
  2. If you are not already signed in, the website will prompt you to log into your account so you can begin creating and managing your playlists. You can sign in with your social media account, your existing video portal account, or you can create a new account.
  3. Once you signed in to your account, click on "Create Clip/Playlist" again and an option to create a new playlist will appear. Type in the name of your new playlist and click "Create." This will automatically add the current video to your playlist.
  4. If you are adding to an existing playlist, click "Add Video" to add the video on this current video page to your playlist. You will see the number of clips change when adding the video.
  5. Click on "Edit Playlist" to trim down the whole video into the clip that you want.
  6. You can now edit the playlist title if you want to change it. Click "Save Changes" before navigating away from the page to ensure the new title is saved. To trim down the whole video into a clip, click "Edit."
  7. To select the clip that you want in your playlist, you can either:
    - Click the player to start the film. When you want your clip to start, click "Capture" next to "Start Time". Then click "Capture" next to "Stop Time" when you want the clip to end.
    - Enter in the timecodes manually.

    Once you are happy with your clip, click "Save Clip"

What is Kanopy?

Kanopy is a streaming media service provided for  the Lyon Campus. Faculty, it is very important to contact the librarians if you want to lease a title.  We can set that up for you.  The films may be blocked from multiple viewers until they are purchased by the library.
