How do I record media using the New Rich Content Editor as an instructor?

You can use the New Rich Content Editor to record video and audio media. You can record media for any length of time, but shorter media recordings are recommended. If your media is longer than 15 minutes, you may want to consider recording and uploading using an external provider. Longer media recordings require more time to render and may be interrupted without a stable internet connection.

Several features in Canvas support the New Rich Content Editor, including Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, and Syllabus.

Notes: 

  • HTML5 media recording only applies to Chrome, Firefox, and Edge (Chromium). If you are using Internet Explorer or Safari, you must use Flash video recording.
  • The New Rich Content Editor is currently a course opt-in feature. You can manage your course features in Course Settings.
