A few easy steps will allow you to embed a video into your Brightspace/D2L course. Allowing your students to watch the video anytime they need to, anywhere they can access their course, even home.
1. Once you have located the video you want to use, click on "See Details" under the image for the title. At that time a box will pop-up offering you options.
2. Select the "</>Embed/Link" option. You will then see a box that will offer two options for copy and pasting. One will be the embed code that will allow you to copy and paste into an HTML document or Brightspace using the HTML editor.
3. Copy that code and follow directions under the Embedding in Brightspace tab in this section to add to your course. If you would like to share the information as a link into a document you post to Brightspace or email to your students, follow the instructions for embedding above but copy the link in the Permanent Link section and paste it into your preferred sharing mechanism.

Does your link begin with http://libresources.sait.ab.ca/login?url= ? If not, here's how to fix the issue:
A persistent link (permalink) is a direct URL that will remain stable over time and is found within the resource record. You typically DO NOT use the URL found in the address bar at the top of your browser.
A proxy link is code that allows off campus access to library resources and is added before the persistent link to the resource (if not automatically included). The library's proxy code looks like: http://libresources.sait.ab.ca/login?url= ...
If your link does not start with the proxy code, add that code to the front of the URL and check the new link in a browser. If you need any help adding the proxy code, check out the link helper page or contact your library liaison!
