How to Use Swank

Stream feature films chosen by faculty to support COM courses from studios like MGM, Paramount, and Sony. Stream 24/7 on or off campus.

Share Videos

Link to Swank videos so that they can be accessed on or off campus. The first step is to get a durable link. For most databases, the URL you see in your browser address bar is a temporary link that will not provide access to the article for other users. The durable link will provide on campus access.

On & Off Campus

In Swank you can get a durable link on the video page from the Copy Direct Link button below the video.

LMS Link

For use in Blackboard you can get a durable link by:

  • Selecting the cover, then select the Share pull down menu.
  • Choose option 3, Copy LMS Link option. Note, this option includes the HTML that creates a live link. If you don't want to edit the HTML in Blackboard, you can just delete the HTML code portion shown in bold red below and a link as you normally would in Blackboard.

<a href=''>Watch Saving Private Ryan</a>
