How do I embed a Canvas Studio video quiz in the Canvas Rich Content Editor as an instructor?

In Canvas, instructors, teacher assistants (TAs), designers, and Canvas Studio account admins can embed video quizzes from Studio in any feature area that contains the Rich Content Editor, including Assignments, Discussions, and Pages. Media is embedded using the Studio LTI tool.

Embedding a Canvas Studio video quiz in the Rich Content Editor will not post grades to the Gradebook. To post grades to the Gradebook, create an external tool assignment.


  • Quizzes must be created from your My Uploads page.
  • Once a version of a quiz has been embedded or taken, it cannot be edited.
  • If the quiz creation option does not display in Studio, this feature has not been enabled in your account. Please contact your admin for more information.
