How do I embed a Canvas Studio video quiz in the Rich Content Editor as an instructor?

In Canvas, instructors, teacher assistants (TAs), designers, and Canvas Studio account admins can embed video quizzes from Studio in any feature area that contains the Rich Content Editor, including Assignments, Discussions, and Pages. Media is embedded using the Studio LTI tool.

Notes: 

  • Quizzes must be created from your My Uploads page.
  • Once a version of a quiz has been embedded or taken, it cannot be edited.
  • If the quiz creation option does not display in Studio, this feature has not been enabled in your account. Please contact your admin for more information.

I was able to embed the video as a quiz, however my students are telling me that it shows the loading symbol forever and the video does not load. This is the only way I found that I can see the students progress - seeing who watched the entire video and who just skipped around or did not watch the video at all. I would like to use this feature for grading, but if I have to just embed the video NOT as a quiz I cannot see who has viewed the video or how long they are watching it. Is anyone else having this issue of an embedded quiz not loading for students?

Hi @whitec3 , thank you for your question. You should be able to see the analytics for your video (which students watched it and how long they watched) no matter where you upload the studio video in your Canvas course. This guide should help you access those analytics. If you have any further questions, please let us know!

Thanks,
Tami

I had the same problem as whitec3 with one of the videos, it was loading forever but never played. I wanted to delete it from the page, but couldn't figure out how to delete the video. it seems that once embedded in the page can't be deleted. Is there any way to do it? I ended up deleting the whole page and started all over again.

Thanks,

Patricia

Hi @sailingmoore,

Thanks for your question. After you have embedded the video in the page you should be able to use the backspace key on your keyboard to delete the video, if needed. I've made a task for our team to add a step to this lesson showing what the embedded video looks like before you save and/or publish your content. 

I hope this helps!

Emily
