How do I record media using the New Rich Content Editor as a student?

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, and Quizzes.

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

Notes: 

  • HTML5 media recording only applies to Chrome and Firefox. If you are using Safari, you must use Flash video recording.
  • The New Rich Content Editor is currently a course opt-in feature. If the Rich Content Editor in your course does not match the images in this lesson, your course is using the classic Rich Content Editor.
