To embed Kaltura media in Pages, Discussions, Assignments, Announcements, and anywhere else in bCourses that uses the Canvas Rich Content Editor, follow the steps in Adding Kaltura Media via the Rich Text Editor in Canvas or watch the video below.
How to embed Kaltura Media using the Rich Content Editor
- Kaltura is our recommended platform for sharing video in bCourses to the members of the course site in which the content is embedded. For alternate embedding options appropriate for a course site with a Visibility setting of "Institution" or "Public," see How do I embed media in bCourses?
- Please be aware that Kaltura Media embedded in a bCourses Announcements is stripped from the version of the Announcement that is sent via email. The recipient can always click through the link in the email to view the full announcement as it was intended to be seen in their browser, but unfortunately, there is no indication that they are not seeing the full message in their email. If you have embedded media in an Announcement that you expect students will view as email (rather than opening the Announcement in bCourses), make sure to state that they should click "view announcement" to view the full message in their web browser.
- Those with the role of Teacher, TA, or Designer can embed video from a Media Gallery (even if it's not in their own My Media). There is a currently known bug that users with the roles of Lead TA or Owner (in a bCourses Project Site) can not embed media from the course Media Gallery that they have that role in. Lead TAs or bCourses Project Site Owners should contact email@example.com if they run into this problem.
