Can students do a Discussion with a video submission?

Is there a feature in Canvas that allows students to submit a video, and allows others in the class to see it and comment?  I'm thinking like a Discussion, only with video.

The current discussion boards in Canvas support this use. There's a record/upload media button built into the tool bar when they compose a reply to a discussion board. It connects to their webcam and allows them to make a video response on the fly. We like to do this especially with "introduce yourself" discussion boards as it lets you connect more with others in an asynchronous environment.
