Q. I’m an instructor who wants to show a Kanopy streaming video title in one of my classes. Will it be available after Purdue switches to “mediated” mode?
Yes. We realize that one of the benefits of Kanopy is its accessibility. Unfortunately, the cost has become prohibitive, and as of January 1st 2020, we no longer provide unmediated access to the entire Kanopy catalog of 50,000+ videos. We are not eliminating any Kanopy videos, we are simply requiring that instructors request videos to be licensed prior to when they are needed for a course. Once a title has been licensed, access to it will remain open on the Kanopy website for twelve months from the date of activation. We will extend or re-license titles for class use when requested by instructors.
There are two ways to request Kanopy video licensing for class use: via the Kanopy website or directly via the firstname.lastname@example.org account. Detailed information about both methods is available on the Libguide.
