Use of Kanopy videos in teaching

The University subscribes to videos from the Kanopy Streaming database.

The service utilises sophisticated platform and delivery technology to offer a new world of online engagement that empowers University of Melbourne Library to stream on demand video at optimal quality to their registered staff and students. The platform provides the infrastructure to enable creating links to teaching videos and teaching clips for inclusion in a Learning Management System.

To start using the videos when creating subjects in the LMS, it is essential to first create a Kanopy personal user account.

Kanopy provides support documents within their system interface (scroll to the bottom of the website page and click on support). The most useful topics are linked below:
