I want my students to submit voice recordings for an assignment. On our campus computers, it says we need to install flash. Is there a way to fix this?
Also, can they submit recordings through their smartphones?
Hi Kelsey Huff,
Unfortunately there is no workaround for needing flash on the campus computer. You will need to work with your tech support to get this installed.
As for the mobile question, students can turn in an assignment using the media recording option on iOS and Android versions of the Canvas Student app:
How do I submit assignments in the Canvas Student app on my iOS device?
For this to work properly, the instructor will need to set the submission type of the assignment to Online and check the option for Media Recordings.
Student can also pre-record audio or video on their device and upload it through the Canvas Student app. The instructor will need to set the submission type of the assignment to Online and check the option for File Uploads.
I prefer to have student pre-record the media on their device just in case there are issues on uploading the media.
Hope this helps.
Thank you so much. That helps a lot!
