VOD block

Add a General VOD Link

A link to VOD – https://vod.carleton.ca/ – can be placed on a course’s cuLearn home page by adding URL resource. This link will automatically redirect to the appropriate course in VOD, based on the cuLearn course it’s embedded in. This redirect only works for links placed the course’s home page.

To Add a URL

  1. Log in to cuLearn using your MyCarletonOne credentials.
  2. Click on your course link.
  3. Go to the topic/section in which you’d like to add a URL.
  4. From the Add a resource drop down menu, select URL.
  5. In the Name text box, enter the Vidoe On Demand
  6. In the External URL box, enter https://vod.carleton.ca/
  7. Click Save and return to course.

Adding Direct links to or Embedding Specific VIdeos

A direct link to an individual video can be placed anywhere in a cuLearn course. These links can be found by instructors after logging in to the VOD page for their course, at https://vod.carleton.ca.

These links will look something like:

https://vod.carleton.ca/lectures?term=202020&crn=20729&lecture=20713

A single video can be embedded anywhere in a cuLearn course, using an iframe. A video’s HTML embed code can be found by instructors after logging in to the VOD page for their course, at https://vod.carleton.ca.

The HTML code will look something like:

<iframe src=” https://vod.carleton.ca/iframe/?&term=202020&crn=20729&lecture=20822” width=”507″ height=”295″ style=”border:none;”></iframe>

To get the Direct link or Embed code

  1. Go to https://vod.carleton.ca
  2. Login with your MyCarletonOne username and password.

Example of Embedded video:

For videos embedded on a cuLearn page, if the student hasn’t logged in to VOD recently, they will be asked to login wherever the video is embedded:
vod login 2

Once they’re logged in, the video will load, replacing the login form. It does not play automatically.

If a student has already logged into VOD recently, all VOD videos will load immediately, instead of the form.

Direct link:

Clicking on a direct link will open VOD in a new window and the video will play automatically. The student will need to login if they haven’t already done so.
vod direct link

RSS feed

An embedded feed showing the 4 most recent videos and a link to the VOD page, can be placed on the course’s home page, or in a block. The iframe automatically detects the course it has been placed in, and shows the corresponding content.

HTML embed code for the RSS feed for any course:

<iframe src=”https://vod.carleton.ca/rss” width=”100%” style=”border:none;”></iframe>

For instructions on embedding iframe content: https://carleton.ca/culearnsupport/instructors/adding-media/

Example
Clicking on a link will take the student to VOD and play the selected video. They will be asked to login if they haven’t already done so. The video will load and play automatically.
