Formatting Links for Sharing

Most streaming video platforms offer options to generate persistent links to share access to content with students via email or syllabi.

Copying & pasting a URL from your browser's address bar will not work at a later date for other users.

Look at the user interface to find options to generate permalinks. Here is an example from AVON: 

  • On the top menu, click on Share.
  • Options will then appear to Copy Permalink (creates a web link) or Copy Embed Code (creates code to embed a video on a digital platform).
