This will prompt the Randolph College proxy login. Simply log in with the same username and password that you use to access the Randolph College portal 

You will also see Log In and Sign Up boxes in the upper right corner of the Kanopy website.  You do not need to create an account with Kanopy to watch videos from the library's collections.  The Kanopy website will save a cookie in your browser's settings so it will remember you for three months.

If you are running into problems accessing videos from Kanopy, clear your browser's cache then follow the instructions provided above to log into Kanopy using the same username and password that you use to access the Randolph College portal.
