As an instructor I can download videos that I have uploaded into ARC. Is there a way for me to allow my students to do so?
Hi Brian Carter
I'm not an ARC user, but I did find some potentially useful info in the ARC Guides.
Also, you might find better answers in the Arc Users Group
I hope this helps,
Thanks for the link. I couldn't find the answer to my exact question but there was a lot of helpful info there.
I am trying to figure out the opposite of your question. In our case, we have Arc in the Global Menu of our account, all the students can download the videos if they go there, select the course in the "My Uploads" menu, click on the video, and click download in the upper left corner.
For us, would be good to have the option that the students do not have access to some videos in the Arc (Global or Course Menu), to use some of them in quizzes instead of using an external platform for this.
Interesting. I’m wondering if Arc wrapped within Canvas strips that away from students as a default. If so, I can understand why, but we offer courses internationally and some students can’t stream and need to download the video (sometimes it takes hours) just to use it.
You’d think you’d be able to shut it off and I’d be able to turn it on. The foundation is obviously there to do so.
Maybe a mod could chip in?

Today I chatted with an online support representative and seems that the big difference is that our institution has Arc in the Global Navigation, and that is why the students can go there and download the videos.
Anyway, you could try this website:
In our case (I am not sure if it will work in yours), you (or the student) can request to reset the password and after waiting for some time, you (or the student) will receive a link to create a new password. The [Institution] name has to be the same as in the link when you share the video from Arc.
Hope this can help,
Betsy, thanks for the tip and following up!! I’ll check it out.

Hello there, Brian Carter...
I have been reviewing older discussion topics here in the Canvas Community, and I stumbled upon your question. I wanted to check in with you because I noticed that there hasn't been any new activity in this topic since the middle of January 2017. We just got Arc added to our Canvas instance this past week, and I've had a chance to play around with it for quite a while now, so I may not offer a lot of "new" information in my response, but I'll share my own experiences...
I am hoping that my response or one of the above responses has helped to answer your question, and so I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" because there hasn't been any new activity in this thread for over three months. However, that will not prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic. I hope that's alright with you. If you feel that one of the above responses has helped to answer your question, please feel free to mark that person's response as "Correct". Looking forward to hearing back from you soon, Brian.

This afternoon we had a webinar training session with Erin Wasson, and I asked her about students being able to download videos that instructors had uploaded to Arc (not YouTube videos). I told her that I had a dummy student, "Frodo Baggins" who was enrolled in a few courses with the "Student" role and also one course with the "Teacher" role. As "Frodo Baggins", I was able to carry out the above and download a video that I (as the instructor) had added to Arc and embedded in a course. Per Erin, this shouldn't be happening. I removed "Frodo Baggins" from the course where he was also a "Teacher" (so he was only enrolled in courses as a "Student"). I am going to paste in her response here:
