  • On the Results page both video segments as well as entire videos will display.  You will have the option to sort or share and once logged in you will be able to add to a folder/playlist.

  • Once a video has been selected, more options will display just below the video as well as on the right-hand side.  Closed-Captioning can be turned on or off from the CC icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the video and a persistent link to the video is available from the Share – Embed/Link buttons under the video. On the right, there are transcripts and a listing of segments that make up the entire video.


Sharing Videos

  • Persistent links to videos/segments are available from the Share – Embed/Link buttons just below the video for you to share/add to LMS.

Favourites, Playlists and Custom Segments:

  • In order to create/save to a Playlist/Favourites folder you must sign-in.  (You can sign-in from the “Your Profile” link at the top right-hand side of the screen, or from the “Add to” option associated with videos/segments)
  • Once signed-in, click “Add to” and decide whether you would like to add to a Playlist or Favourites folder.
  • If saving as a “Favorite”, highlight “Add to Favorites”, select or create the folder you would like to save to and name your video.

Playlists are customized videos (by you) that can consist of any combination of segments and/or full videos - from one video or multiple programs. (If adding segments be sure to highlight the proper one from the list)

  • If saving as a “Playlist”, highlight “Add to Playlist”.  Select what you would like to add and add it to an existing playlist or create a new one.

Custom Segments
Custom Segments are sections of a video with a specific start and end time.

  • Custom Segments can be created from the “Segment” link below the video.
  • Cue the video to your desired starting point by entering a start and click the “Set Start Time” button and do the same for the end time.  Supply a Title and click the “Create Segment” link.  Your custom segment will now show on the right hand side of your screen under the “Custom Segments” title.

  • Once a playlist has been created, it can be accessed (when logged in) from the "My Content" link within the “My Profile" button found at the top of the screen.

Please Note:  Persistent links added to PowerPoint must be from a “Playlist”.  If the link added to Power Point still does not work try logging into FOD first, then try the Power Point link.

Use the magnifying glass to search for videos or use one of the links in the top task bar to browse Categories, Shows, Collections or Channels – where you’ll find the popular News in Review.

Playlists can be accessed from the Account link at the top right of the screen once logged in.

National Film Board of Canada (NFB)

Why can’t I find a particular NFB title on the site?

  1. Rights – NFB may not have the rights to show the film online yet
  2. Digitization – NFB may not have converted the film into the correct format to play online yet
  3. Time – NFB may not have had enough time to get a title online

How do I share videos?

A variety of options are available just below the film’s synopsis.  To be able to add to D2L click on the </> (Embed) link.  Copy the link found between the first set of quotations.



Playlists and custom chapters can be created once you are signed in with a personal account.  Click the “Add to Playlist” or “Custom Chapters” button below and to the right of the film.  Select an existing playlist or create a new one.  They will be stored on the left hand side once logged in.
