Kanopy only sells licenses for videos, not the videos themselves. The licenses expire after one year. If it's been a while since you last used a particular Kanopy video, or if you have found an interesting Kanopy video that is already licensed, before assigning it to your students, follow the simple steps below to make sure that the license for it is still active.
1. Enter the title of the video and select Books & Media (CSUSB).
2. Under Refine my results on the left of the screen, select Full text online and Video, then click Apply Filters. This step narrows your search results to streaming video.
3. Click on the title of the video or on Available online, either one--it doesn't matter.
4 A. If the next screen says: Available online at: Kanopy Streaming Video: Requires a faculty request, the video is not currently licensed and must be requested as follows:
4 B. If the next screen says: Available online at: Kanopy Streaming Video: CSUSB Licensed Titles and Licensed for unlimited viewing until [a date], the date is day the license expires.
