Linking to articles and films: SWANK films

Creating persistent URLs or PURLs

Obtaining Links for SWANK films

It is not necessary to request links for use in iCollege.

Students and Faculty may access most films directly through the SWANK database.

Get links through the database as follows:

  • Log into the SWANK database and choose the film you want.
  • Select Student or Faculty.  (Faculty-level access requires setting up a free account.)
  • In the lower right corner of the film window, you will see two buttons. (See yellow circle in image below.)
    • Click on “direct link” for a link that you can share directly with students (e.g. email). This will prompt them for their GSU credentials.
    • Click on the “LMS link” for html code to create a link in an HTML editor.
    • Unfortunately, SWANK no longer generates embed codes, only links.

Buttons for direct and LMS links are in the lower right corner below the playback screen.
