Anyone know how to get Canvas to accept video submissions AND files in the same assignment? Students are able to submit multiple files to the same assignment but not when they add a video. Thanks!
This is how Canvas behaves when students submit assignments. If there are multiple tabs available for them to submit from (such as Files, Text Entry, Media, etc.) it only submits from one. And it's the one that they have visible when they click Submit.
I see what you are trying to have them to and my suggestion would be to have them first submit either the Files or the Video, and then Resubmit the assignment with the other items. When you go into Speedgrader you will be able to see that there are multiple submissions and select from the list to see them all.
Another option is to have them first submit their media recording, and then attach their files as comments. Here is how.
First submit media recording. On the confirmation page have them click Submission Details in the upper right corner.
On that screen they have the ability to add a comment and there is an Attach File option as part of that.
Personally I like the 2nd option of having then attach the files as a comment. The main issue though is that since they are submitted as comments they don't show up in the Doc Viewer part of Speedgrader. You would see them in the comment stream and need to download to view them.
