• For Students - How to Add Video to an Assignment

In a Canvas course, it is possible for a student to submit a video for an ASSIGNMENT (after the instructor has enabled this feature). As a student, the procedures for submitting a video in an assignment depend on what you need to do:

 

  UPLOAD A VIDEO THROUGH "MY MEDIA"
I need to UPLOAD a pre-existing video I've already created and submit it for my assignment. This uses your collection of personal videos in your "MY MEDIA" repository.

  SIMPLE WEBCAM RECORDING
I need to do a simple WEBCAM RECORDING on-the-fly and submit it for my assignment.

  MORE RECORDING OPTIONS
I need to do a SCREEN RECORDING, VOICE RECORDING, OR COMBINATION SCREEN RECORDING+WEBCAM RECORDING and submit it for my assignment.
