If an instructor has created a video assignment as outlined in  “Kaltura – Creating a Video Assignment in Canvas“, the instructor can send the following instructions below to students to help them upload their video assignment using the Kaltura My Media tool.



  • Upload or record your video assignment using Canvas My Media. You can upload or use Kaltura Capture to record your video.
  • Uploading a large video file from a slow Internet connection may take several minutes. We recommend video shorter than 10 minutes.
