Sharing Videos with Athens State Students and Staff

After you have created a video in Knowmia, there will be times where you want to share a video with a colleague.  This process is only recommended for those instances where a select individual will need to watch a video one or two times (ex: Students Submitting Presentations to an Instructor, Showing a Computer Error, Demonstrating a Specific Task for a Colleague, etc.).  For instances where entire classes will need to view a lecture or video, you should add it directly into Blackboard by following the Adding a Knowmia Video to a Blackboard Course instructions.

NOTE*When sharing videos, the user will have to login to Knowmia to view the video.  This means that only individuals with an or email address will be able view the video.

To share a video you have created, complete the following instructions:


Step 1: Login to Knowmia by going to and entering your login credentials.


Step 2: When in Knowmia, find the video that you want to share.  Once you have located the video, click on the thumbnail. (see image below)step2.jpg  

Step 3: Click the Share button below the video on the watch page.



Step 4:
On the Link tab, click the Copy button to copy the URL to your clipboard. Paste the link into the location to share with others such as in an email or course syllabus. When a user clicks the link, it opens in a web browser window. Viewers can see the media, title, and description.



Step 5: Paste the link into the location to share with other such as in an email or course syllabus.


Once you have emailed the link, the recipient should be able to click it to view the video.  Please remember that the recipient will have to login to the Knowmia system in order to view the video.  Hence, they must have an or email account and completed the registration process.
