How do I record a video using Flash in the Rich Content Editor as a student?

The Rich Content Editor will be discontinued in a future release. Instructors can enable the New Rich Content Editor feature in course feature options.

If you are using Chrome or Firefox, you can record a video using HTML5. However, if you are using Internet Explorer 11 or Safari, you must use Flash to record a video in the Rich Content Editor. The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, and Quizzes).

You may need to Enable Flash in Internet Explorer 11 or Enable Flash in Safari before recording video. You will also need to use the current versions of your web browser and Flash.

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

Canvas videos also support caption files. Once you record and save your video, learn how to add captions to a video.

If you are unable to record video comments with your webcam, there are several troubleshooting steps you can try.
