Restricting Students to download video files

Jump to solution

Hi,

The issue is, I have a video file that I have uploaded on Canvas LMS.

But I don’t want the student to download the video file.

They just have to view the video and move to the next module.

Can you please, help me with this?

 

Thanks,

Toheed Gillani

Good morning, @ToheedGillani ...

It sounds like you are making a link to your video rather than embedding the video on your content page.  Rather than uploading the video directly to your course, there are other options available to you:

Hopefully one of these suggestions will work for your needs.  Sing out if you have any other questions about this...thanks!

Embedding your video is, in my opinion, the better option...as it's using a media server to handle the video (be it a Canvas media server, YouTube, etc.).  And yes, it would normally not allow your students to download the video...only watch the video however many times they want.  Does this help?

Thanks @Chris_Hofer,

 

So, embedding the file is the only option to restrict the students from downloading the file.

And, It also gives us an interface in which students can view the file.

 

Please, let me know I am correct or wrong.
