[Assignments] Provide a Time Limit to Media Recording Assignment Submissions

For Online Assignment => Media Recording Submission  -- have the ability to put a time limit for the recordings submitted by students.


This came up during our Canvas Bootcamp, and we have a LOT of Elementary Teachers who are learning Canvas, and Media Recording submissions will likely be used a lot with the little ones. Being able to enter a time limit will be helpful.


From a teacher:  "For video submissions can you place a time limit, as you can in Flipgrid?"

This would be very helpful - especially for younger Canvas users who might be inclined to record very long audio/video answers.

I agree with Joanna!  Some love to keep on going!

Great idea!  My class will record like they are making a YouTube video.

Yes! I agree. This would be amazing and so helpful for our K-2 students.

Great feature! Especially for teachers who, like me, have 30+ students.

I think a time limit on videos would help not only with upload time but also with any streaming issues one might face.

This is an great idea to allow teachers to put a time limit on videos. I like the idea of being able to control the length for those who would do too short of a submission and those who would be tempted to go on and on.
