How do I submit a media recording in Canvas ?

Sometimes, your teacher may ask you to make a recording to submit in Canvas. Canvas does have a media recording tool that you can use to make an audio/video recording or submit a recording that you made outside of Canvas. You can do this whether you are using a mobile device or a computer/Chromebook. See the step-by-step directions and video tutorials below. For steps to submit other types of files, view this help article

  2. Tap the "Submit Assignment" button and choose "Media Recording."
  3. If creating new audio or video, tap "Audio" or "Video" at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Press the red record button to begin your recording. Press the red stop button to end the recording. 
  5. Tap the play button to watch your video. If you don't like it, tap "Retake." If you do like it, tap "Use Video."

  2. Click the "Record / Upload Media" button under the submission area.
