Limit Discussion Submission methods

0 Kudos

I have students submit video a lot, and in normal assignments I can limit that submission to Media Recordings only. I do not allow them to submit through file submission because this usually forces me to download the file most of the time, and I can't just play the video in browser. When it comes to discussions, it's a complete free for all, and I need more control! The whole point of a discussion is to create a place for conversation, and if students have to download other student's videos rather than just watch in browser, then that tends to discourage the watching of them. Also, I really really don't want all of these files getting downloaded on to the local computers.

Thank you for sharing this idea. Please add your comments to the ongoing discussion underway at Canvas Studio - Open-ended Questions for video quizzes. We've archived this one to remove the duplication and keep the conversation unified in one place.

Having the ability to add short answer questions would be very advantageous, especially for secondary education.
