Adding Media Using the Canvas Text Editor
This is the fastest way to add a new media object (video, audio or image) into your Canvas course.
- Go to any Canvas page that has the text editor tool (content, discussion board or assignment page)
- Click the V symbol and select Embed Kaltura Media
- After selecting Embed Kaltura Media, a window will open showing giving you several options. From here you can add a new item by clicking Add New or select an existing media item that has been already uploaded.
Note: If you are uploading a new video, this step can take 5-15 minutes to publish because the video has to be optimized for streaming on the web.
- Press the Save & Publish or Save.
