Films on Demand: Sharing/D2L

Sharing Links

Every Title, Segment, and Playlist has its own direct URL.  If a student is trying to access a video or playlist from off-campus, the link will automatically direct them to authenticate with their Star ID and password or their Library barcode and password.  After they do so, they are directed straight to the video.

Look for the correct, authenticated URL in several places.

For Titles and Segments: the authenticated URL is directly below the video information, under the video viewing area.

   Title and Segment URLs

For Playlists: Go to the Playlists tab on the top gray bar.  The Playlist URL is directly under the title of the playlist.
