How do you block audio file downloads?

Jump to solution

Hi, I want to post an audio recording of lectures, but block students from downloading those recordings, so that they can only listen through the website. Is this possible? Thanks!

Does your campus have Canvas Studio? I know that it's possible to prevent students from downloading content that is shared through Studio, and I wonder if would work the same for audio.

I agree with @klundstrum here.  Studio accepts both video and audio files to upload into one's Studio Library.  You can then embed those video or audio files into your course and prevent students from downloading them to their computer.  Here's a document describing all the acceptable file formats: What file formats does Canvas Studio support? - Canvas Community.  Hope this helps a bit!
