I am travelling and will miss a class session. Can I tape a lecture so I don't lose the class time?
Hi Michael and welcome to the community! We are happy to have you here.
The simple answer to your question is no, Canvas is not designed as a lecture capture platform so you can't tape a lecture, or rather you probably would not want to try to use the record media comment tool in the rich content editor to record yourself delivering a full length lecture to a classroom. What you could more easily do however would be to record yourself using a camera, phone, etc and then upload the lecture to Canvas or upload it to youtube or another video sharing site and then link that into your Canvas course for your students to access.
I have made narrated Powerpoint files in Microsoft Powerpoint, then made those available through Canvas.
Making the narrated ppt was easy to figure out.
No 3rd party website to worry about, just 3rd party software.
Not quite a movie of the lecture, as you asked, but if you already have the ppt then adding narration and an onscreen pointer to that are easy to do.
Can you send me more info on how to do that? If not, I can check with PP gurus around here.

“And Jonah stalked to his shaded seat and waited for God to come around to his way of thinking. And God is still waiting for a host of Jonahs in their comfortable houses to come around to His way of loving.”
Quoted from J. Verkuyl, "The Biblical Foundation of the Worldwide Mission Mandate," in Perspectives on the World Christian Movement, p. 44
