Mediasite Videos Link Hidden from Observer Role

We use the Sonic Foundry Mediasite LTI integration with Canvas, which adds a videos link to the course menu.  Students use this link to view videos that are tagged to the course.  Our link is called "Mediasite Videos."


Problem is that those enrolled in the course as Observer cannot see the Mediasite Videos link.  It is hidden from the Observer role.  The only roles that can see it are Student and Teacher.


I asked Sonic Foundry support about this and was told it may be possible using REST API to modify the integration.  Has anybody done this before?  Please share your successes/challenges. 


I've attached a screenshot of the menu item.
