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

Create Stable Links for Swank Digital Campus

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. If you are prompted, click on the Instructor button in Swank Digital Campus. You may need to create an account and register as an Instructor the first time you access Swank. 
  2. Within your video, go to Share > Copy Direct Link (see image below). 
  3. Since this URL includes, this is your stable link.
  4. See Stable Links Tips & Tricks for troubleshooting suggestions if your stable link does not work as expected.
