How do I add a Canvas Studio media assignment in a Canvas course as an instructor?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I add a Canvas Studio media assignment in a Canvas course as an instructor?

You can create assignments where students can submit videos or audio files from their Canvas Studio accounts.

Studio media submissions can be created as a Text Entry or Online submission type. Both submission types allow students to access their Studio account and select a video or audio file. Currently, External Tool submission types are not supported.

  • Text Entry: Allows students to embed media using the Studio icon in the Rich Content Editor
  • File Uploads: Allows students to view the Studio tab as a submission option

Notes:

  • Students can submit Studio media assignments via the web or the Canvas by Instructure Android or iOS app.
  • When an assignment using Studio is muted, submission comments are still visible to students.
