Kanopy requires users login to JCU's identity access management system. However the login option for this is only consistently displayed on Kanopy's 'institutional' home page https://jcu.kanopy.com. A direct link to a video's entry page may not display a link to the institutional login required for access. Often users following these links will see a Error 403 forbidden and are likely to be confused by the login options that are presented (none of which are the required institutional login).

Method

  1. Go to https://jcu.kanopy.com
  2. Log in (if you are off campus)
  3. Find your video
  4. Click on Share
    If the Share link URL does not work off campus:
  5. Click on Embed:
  6. Copy the src value (not the quotation marks):
  7. Use this as the link

The embed version of the video has a built-in institutional login that the 'share' link does not.

Note

  • Because you are linking directly to the video the viewer cannot see the associated metadata (viewing time, dates, direct, summary etc)
  • This method is only required if the Share link gives a 403 error off campus.
