Kanopy is a streaming video database. The University Library purchases access to individual video titles.

Before you can create a clip, you first need to register and create an individual user account.

Once you have logged in under your account, you can create a clip in Kanopy:

  1. Select the video from which you would like to make a clip
  2. Click the '+Create Clip/Playlist' option underneath the video
  3. Either 'Create a new playlist' or within an existing Playlist, click 'Add video'
  4. Now click 'Edit playlist'
  5. In the Editing a Playlist screen, click 'Edit' for the video for which you would like to create a clip
  6. In the Clip creation page, set the start and stop times, then save the clip.  Click 'Save Changes' at the bottom of the screen before you move on
  7. To view the clip you have created, choose the appropriate playlist title.  The clips (or saved full videos) will appear in a column to the right of the video.  Click on the clip title to play.

To share the link to the clip, click 'Share/Embed' when you are viewing the clip, and copy the link provided or click the  button under the Social Media options.
