Creating a Personal Kanopy User Account

You can create a personal "user account" on Kanopy by selecting the "Sign in" button at the top right of the Kanopy website and creating a profile. There are a number of benefits you get from creating a profile, such as:

  • You can edit films (e.g. create clips and playlists) and store these for later reference
  • You can create watch-lists of your favorite films and store these for later reference.
  • You can put links to your clips and mashups into your eLearn page, so that your students can watch the specific film segments you desire.

How to create a user profile?

  1. Access the Kanopy website, select the 'Sign In' button in the top right of the page.
  2. Create an account by either:
    1. Using your social media account (Facebook, Google)
    2. Select 'Sign up with your email address in seconds' to create a non-social media linked account
  3. Whenever you are signed in, you can access your ‘Dashboard’ from the top right. On the Dashboard, you can manage your personal profile details, your clips/playlists, watch list, recently watched, comments, and more.
  4. For More information about creating clips/playlists and mashups see here.
