How do I submit a Media Recording assignment in Canvas?

You can upload a video or audio file to submit as an assignment in Canvas. You can also use Canvas to record an audio or video file to submit as an assignment. Before submitting an assignment, you may want to review all assignment information, such as the assignment rubric, if any. You can also submit assignments using your Android or iOS device.

Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are also copied to your user files but are not counted against your user quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file. Files are stored in the Submissions folder.

Notes:

  • Upload Media is preferred over Record Media, please see Record Media and Upload Media sections for more details.
  • Canvas will not accept media uploads larger than 500 MB.
  • Your instructor will decide what type of submissions are allowed. One or both of these options may not be available. You may also have the option to resubmit assignments if your instructor allows.
  • Not all of your assignments may be submitted online. If you cannot see the Submit Assignment link, your instructor may want you to submit your assignment in a different way, or the availability date has passed. View the description of the assignment for instructions, or contact your instructor for assistance.

Record Media

PLEASE NOTE: This Record Media area uses Adobe Flash, which has been deprecated and has an official end-of-life on December 31, 2020. This feature often will not work and we recommend recording the video or audio on a phone or from a camera/voice recorder (you can check one out at the Information Commons, Building 16 first floor), then using the Upload Media tab to upload the video or audio file that you can save from whichever device you use. This way you will have the file and can back it up and/or re-upload if something goes wrong with the submission (the Record Media area does not save the video anywhere if it does not submit correctly).
