Creating an Account

Creating an account with Kanopy allows you to save a playlist, or to install the Kanopy Roku app to watch on your home TV. Kanopy also works with most iOS and Android mobile devices directly from their web browser. A mobile app is available, but it is not required to view video on a mobile device. To use the Kanopy app, you must first create a Kanopy account.

To create an account:

1. Click the "Sign up" link in the top right hand corner of Gettysburg's Kanopy homepage.

2. Enter your information in the boxes provided. (Or sign in with Facebook or Google.)

3. If you don't use Facebook or Google to create the account, be sure to check your email for the confirmation message from Kanopy, and then click "Verify my email" to confirm your email address.
