Depending on your institution's goals and preferences, Canvas Studio can be accessed in several ways. Most commonly, Studio accounts are integrated with Canvas.
The most direct way to access Studio is through a Studio account.
You can use a Studio account to view, share, and comment on any uploaded video or audio media file.
In Canvas, if Studio is enabled for everyone in your institution, the Global Navigation Menu includes a Studio link. This link gives you direct access to your Studio account from anywhere in Canvas.
Note: If your Global Navigation Menu does not include a Studio link, you can still access Studio through the Rich Content Editor.
When Studio is integrated with Canvas, users can access Studio as an external tool through the Rich Content Editor. Instructors can access Studio through the Course Navigation link. The Studio integration allows instructors to seamlessly integrate media interaction into the classroom.
The Rich Content Editor is part of multiple features in Canvas including Assignments, Discussions, and Pages. For students, the Rich Content Editor is also available in course groups and in Text Entry assignment submissions.
Users can access Studio through the Rich Content Editor even if they do not have direct access to their Studio account through the Global Navigation Menu. However, access through the Rich Content Editor includes modified functionality and gives more control to the course instructor.
To open Studio, click the Studio icon . If the icon does not display directly in the toolbar, you may need to click the Options icon .
Currently, Studio provides a separate login site for Studio admins. Studio sites allow admins to manage users for their institution. This site is separate from Canvas and is hosted in a separate URL. However, all other content in the Studio site is the same as in a Studio account.
Accessing this site requires an email invitation to create a user password. Any user who receives an email invitation can access the Studio site.
Note: If your institution enables Canvas authentication, you can log into your Studio site with your Canvas credentials.
