Stable Links for Electronic Resources

How to create stable links for online journals, e-books, and streaming media

Create Stable Links for Kanopy Films

To comply with copyright and meet licensing agreements, you must use a stable link to share streaming media. Do not embed a video directly into D2L or a course-related website. 

  1. Click on the Share button (see image below).
  2. Copy the URL shown in the Share Link box (see image below).
  3. Since Kanopy includes "msu" in their base URL "msu.kanopy.com," this is your stable link, and no further modification is needed.
  4. See Stable Links Tips & Tricks for troubleshooting suggestions if your stable link does not work as expected.
