    Linking and Embedding Films on Demand Videos through D2L


    Following are some specific tips to help you integrate both Title/Segment URLs and an Embedded Player in your D2L courses.


    Linking to Films on Demand Videos

    1.  Navigate to Films on Demand ( (you may need to log in if you are off campus) and search for the title or segment you'd like to link to.
    2. Select the video/segment you wish to link from the results list (or from your playlist).
    3. Scroll down below the video clip. There will be a box labeled "Title URL" (see example below) if you are embedding the whole video or "Segment URL" if you are embedded just one clip. Copy this entire URL. Do not use the URL from your browser window at the top of the screen.
