How to take a video created in Camtasia 9 with embedded quizzes to playback in Canvas?

I have a request from faculty, she would like to import a video created in Camtasia 9 that has embedded quizzes. I noticed that you can do this with or using your own website however both have file storage limitations of 2GB so she will not be able to use either of them. I was hoping she could by bypass this and import in Canvas. I was able to export the video using the MP4 with Smart Player however, the quizzes do not show during playback when adding to Canvas via the Files tool or through the media tool in the Rich Content editor.

Has anyone else been able to use a Camtasia 9 video with embedded quizzes work in Canvas?

Greetings! I'm not sure of the answer to this question, but I've shared it with the Instructional Designers‌ group in the Community to see if they can help.

I would export as SCORM. 

Do this first: Camtasia: Quizzing & Surveys - YouTube 

You will need your system admin to enable the SCORM LTI in Canvas. 

Here is how to import the SCORMs into Canvas: How do I import SCORM files as an assignment?  

I hope this helps.

Hello there, klbecke1...

I am reviewing some of the older questions here in the Canvas Community, and I came across your question.  I wanted to check in with you because I noticed that we have not heard back from you since you first posted your question on March 8, 2019.  It looks like  @floresr  had some possible feedback for you.  Have you had an opportunity to review his response?  Do you feel that he has helped to answer your question?  If so, please go ahead and mark his reply as "Correct".  However, if you're still looking for some help, please let us know that as well by posting a message below so that someone from the Community might be able to assist you.

Also, has your school purchased Canvas Studio (formerly Arc)?  I'm not sure if you knew this or not, but Studio now supports video quizzing.  Here are some Guides with more information:
