Kanopy: How to Tell If Your Video has Expired: Home

Kanopy Videos Expire!

If you use a particular video in your class each time you teach it, you should confirm that the video is still available before every school term.

Kanopy licensed videos expire after one year.

When a video expires, you have to request it again for another year.

When you locate your video, click "Available online" to see if it has expired:


If it says "Licensed for unlimited viewing until..." then it's still available until that date.


If it has expired, no date will appear. Instead, you'll need to request the video again by clicking on the "By Request Only" link:
