Introducing: Canvas Studio

Announcing Canvas Studio, a built-in video recording and uploading tool available to students and instructors directly inside of Canvas!

Canvas Studio is a video tool built-in to Canvas that allows instructors and students to upload and record video directly into Canvas in a variety of ways. Instructors can record webcam and capture screencasts directly in Canvas, post the videos in Pages, Discussions, and Quiz questions, and organize and share video content with other instructors. Students can upload and record video content into Canvas Discussions and assignment submissions without the need for any fancy video hardware or software, including recording and uploading from mobile devices.

Playback speed in Canvas studio hosted videos can be adjusted to play slower (up to 0.5x) or faster (up to 2.0x) to allow students to adjust to their needs. Video quality automatically adjusts based on internet connection speed, with video quality up to 1080p.

Academic Technology (AT) has prepared an introduction video and guide, with more guides on the way before Fall 2023. Learn more via the Canvas help guide on Studio.
