Kaltura - Inserting a Video in Canvas with the Rich Content Editor
When you upload videos in My Media or record them with Kaltura Capture, you can embed them in Canvas pages, assignments, discussions, quizzes, and announcements with the Rich Content Editor.
Kaltura (referred to as "My Media" in Canvas) is the video portal for instructors, students, and staff across the University of Wisconsin System. Instructors, students, and staff can use it to easily upload, store, stream, and share (or restrict) videos.
Once you have uploaded videos in My Media or recorded them with Kaltura Capture, you can embed them in Canvas pages, assignments, discussions, quizzes, and announcements with the Rich Content Editor.
1. Go to an editable Canvas page, a discussion, an assignment that allows text entry submissions, etc., and click the Edit button with the pencil icon, the Reply button for discussion posts, or the Start Assignment button to open the Rich Content Editor.
2. In the Rich Content Editor, click the My Media button in the toolbar. If you do not see this button in the toolbar, first click the More... button (three dots icon) to reveal additional toolbar buttons, then click the My Media button.
3. A window with your My Media library will open. Find the video you want to insert and click the </> Embed button to insert the video with default settings or click the gear-shaped "Embed Settings" icon to use advanced video embed options.
4. Your video should appear in the text box of the Rich Content Editor. Click Save, Post Reply, or Submit Assignment to save your work.
