Provide a Time Limit to Media Recording Assignment Submissions

Provide a Time Limit to Media Recording Assignment Submissions


For Online Assignment => Media Recording Submission  -- have the ability to put a time limit for the recordings submitted by students.

This came up during our Canvas Bootcamp, and we have a LOT of Elementary Teachers who are learning Canvas, and Media Recording submissions will likely be used a lot with the little ones. Being able to enter a time limit will be helpful.

From a teacher:  "For video submissions can you place a time limit, as you can in Flipgrid?"

This would be very helpful - especially for younger Canvas users who might be inclined to record very long audio/video answers.

I agree with Joanna!  Some love to keep on going!

Great idea!  My class will record like they are making a YouTube video.

Yes! I agree. This would be amazing and so helpful for our K-2 students.

Great feature! Especially for teachers who, like me, have 30+ students.

I think a time limit on videos would help not only with upload time but also with any streaming issues one might face.

This is an great idea to allow teachers to put a time limit on videos. I like the idea of being able to control the length for those who would do too short of a submission and those who would be tempted to go on and on.

This would be very, very helpful to me.

Yes, allow teachers to set the time limit as well! 


Agreed!  My high school modern language teachers would like this feature as well!

I think that this is a great idea.  It would help the instructor better define parameters like on a paper submission that has a word limitation or word minimum (your paper should be at least 500 words).  The instructor could define a time parameter (your video should be at least five minutes) and then prevent uploading media that is too short.

Yes! That would be just amazing!

I also would concur that this is a great idea. We often have students who do way to long of videos and then have issues uploading. Being able to set a limit for media or recordings were done in Studio would be a huge help!

I want to be able to add a time limit for an assignment with submission type Online Entry, Media Recording. I would like to have options such as, 30 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, 2 min, unlimited.
