Canvas Studio is a powerful, easy-to-use media tool that integrates directly with Canvas that will allow you and your students to create, upload, edit, and manage audio and video (AV) files. It also allows you to embed in-video assessment questions and provides useful usage analytics. Existing AV files can be uploaded or new recordings can be created with Studio's capture and editing tools.

The Rich Content Editor is part of multiple features in Canvas including Assignments, Discussions, and Pages. For students, the Rich Content Editor is also available in course groups and in Text Entry assignment submissions.

Users can access Studio through the Rich Content Editor even if they do not have direct access to their Studio account through the Global Navigation Menu. However, access through the Rich Content Editor includes modified functionality and gives more control to the course instructor.

To open Studio, click the plug icon in the tool bar. If Studio is not displayed, you may need to click the View All option and select it from the list.
