Accessing Canvas Studio from your Global Navigation
We recommend instructors and students access Canvas Studio from their Global Navigation to create and edit screen capture, and to manage videos (including lecture capture, YouTube videos and uploaded videos) for their courses.
Accessing Studio from the Course Navigation
In a Canvas course, Studio in the course navigation is only available to the Instructor. Students do not see the link. The course instructor can add and record new videos/screen captures for the course, which become part of his/her Studio library, accessible from the Global Navigation. The instructor cannot create quizzes to media here, but can incorporate in the course media that have quizzes already added.
The Course Instructor can embed Canvas Studio media to a course in the Rich Content Editors ("Pages", "Assignments", "Discussions" & "Quizzes").
In the Rich Content Editor interface:
If the media you select has quizzes created for it, you will choose between "Standard embed" or "Video Quiz embed". When you select "Video quiz embed" (see the screenshot below), you will select a quiz from the drop-down list. Click the "Embed" button.
Refer to the Canvas Guide on incorporating media into a Canvas course.
We do not recommend this method, but the Course Instructor can also embed Canvas Studio media into a course Module.
When adding a module item, from the drop-down list select External Tool, and then select Canvas Studio. Be sure to check the box "Open a new tab". Then on your following screen, select the media from your Studio Library, and choose Standard Embed or Video Quiz Embed. Click Select or Save to finish the process.
