A Faculty Guide to Kanopy Streaming Video: Kanopy Method 1 - The CSUSB Site

How faculty can find, request, and link to Kanopy streaming videos, and also check license expiration dates.


Colorful, decorative horizontal line.

     The best method for discovering already-licensed Kanopy videos.  The one-year licenses come with unlimited access for all CSUSB users and may be used in multiple classes by multiple instructors.  Includes California Newsreel Videos at Kanopy and Media Education Foundation Videos at Kanopy.  Does not include all videos offered by Kanopy.



Search by title or keyword or browse.  There are two browse buttons.  The one at the top of the screen allows browsing of the entire site by categories (movies, documentaries, etc.).  The one on the rotating banner allows browsing by a variety of options in one featured collection.


No need to request these Kanopy videos; they are already licensed.  To link to these videos, see Share Link in Kanopy instructions on the Link to Licensed Kanopy Videos page of this guide.


Before giving a class assignment, check the license expiration date to ensure that a video will be available.  You cannot get this information from within this database.
