How do I create a user for Canvas Studio as an admin?

When users access Canvas Studio through Canvas, users are automatically given a Studio account, added to the Studio users list, and assigned a Studio role based on their user role in Canvas. However, if you need to add a specific user to Studio (usually as an admin), you should create their account through your institution's Studio account.

When you add a user to your Studio site, the user receives an email invitation to create a password to access the Studio site.

Note: Currently once you create a user, you cannot remove the user from the Studio account.

Open Studio Settings

Open Studio Settings

In Canvas Studio, click the Navigation Menu icon [1], then click the Studio Settings link [2].

View Studio Users

View Studio Users

Click the Studio Users tab.

Create User

Click the Create User button.

Enter User Details

Enter the user's information for the account. The user's information only affects how the user is viewed in the Studio account and does not have any affect on a user's Canvas account. However, for best results, a user's Studio account information should match the user's Canvas information.

In the Full Name field [1], enter the user's full name.

In the Display Name field [2], enter the name that should be seen by other users in the account.

In the Email field [3], enter the user's email address. The user will be sent an email address to create an account password.

If you want to give admin rights to the user, click the Is Admin checkbox [4].

Save User

Save User

Click the Save button.

How do I share my "Studio" tab with my students. In my Canvas Class I remember we were able to do so but my students are telling me they can't see the tab. 

I place the Studio tab in the top panel of my navigation in settings. Why is it not working?

Please advise,

Manny

Hi @riveracepeda, thanks for your question. Students are not able to see most LTI links added to course navigation, like Studio. They can, however, access their Studio library through the global navigation menu and they should be able to view Studio media you embed in the course.

Thanks,

Emily

Hi Emily,

Thank you so much for your reply and guidance. I will do that. Would I embed the videos in the Unit Lesson itself or can I share it via announcements?

Best Regards,

Manny

Hi @riveracepeda

Yes! You can embed a video in areas that use the Rich Content Editor, such as announcements, assignments, discussions, pages, etc. Please let us know if you have additional questions.

Thanks,

Hi Emily,

This is a quote from one of my students about "Studio"

"When I click "Add" in my Studio tab on the top right, I only have the option to Drag & Drop Files, not upload from YouTube. I've checked my Settings and can't figure out if there's a way to enable YouTube links in Studio."

Are the students given an option to download links from YouTube or is it just for Faculty?

Please advise,

Manny

Hi @riveracepeda, I just checked and there is a permission in Studio settings that would restrict students from uploading YouTube videos. I'd recommend checking with your local Studio admin to see about getting that functionality allowed. And I've made a task for our team to make sure that info is included in the Studio Guides.

Thanks,

Emily
