How To Create Captions / Subtitles For New or Uploaded Videos in Canvas

Blog Post created by on May 3, 2016

Did you know you can easily create and upload captions /subtitles to videos in Canvas?


This is a great way to ensure your video content is accessible to all of your students! You can do this by adding a video content Rich Content Editor. The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus).


Note: Canvas must render the video and create a URL link before you can create a caption file. If you try to add subtitles and the subtitle creation tool is not yet available, try accessing your video later.


In the video below, @ONE shows us how to do achieve this. Enjoy!
