Sharing or Embedding the Playlist in Blackbaord
To share or embed the playlist, click “Share/Embed” on My Playlists. The Share link will appear as the default view, but you can select the Embed tab next to it to display the embed link. Then, copy the entire embed link.
To embed the playlist to Blackboard, choose your course on Blackboard and go to Course Content > Build Content > Create Item.
Add a name for the Item under “Content Information.” Then, click “HTML” in the text box.
Once you clicked “HTML,” you will see a new window. Paste the embed link you copied from Kanopy in the box. Make sure to add an “s” after “http” in the embed code to create an HTTPS link. Click “Update.”
You can select date and time restrictions under “Standard Options.” Click “Submit” on the bottom right when you are ready to upload the playlist to your Course Content.
