Embedding library resources in Canvas: Docuseek

Docuseek Databases in Canvas

Including videos from Docuseek can be done in two ways. Add them to your course as you would a journal article or link to a database OR you can embed them with the Docuseek video player directly in your Canvas page, assignment, or quiz. 

*Video tutorial coming soon*

Locate the film you would like to use within the database.

Below the video, you will see the option to "Embed". Select this option to see both the embed code and the link URL. You can use either option - select whichever one looks best for your course page.

If you prefer to create only a link to the film, select the "external link" option.
