Prior to the current version of the Canvas Student App, users were able to post videos from their phone on a Discussion Board assignment and have the video embedded on the Discussion Board thread itself. The embedded video makes it easy for the teacher to watch and grade the assignment.
The current version of the Canvas Student app (V 6.2), however, seems to only allow attachments (paperclip icon) to the discussion board responses. This means that in order to watch the video, the user must download the video file and watch it on their computer. Has the embed feature been removed from the app or is it somewhere else?
