What is Canvas Studio?

Canvas Studio is a video and screen capture service within Canvas which is free to all CSUF faculty and students.

Instructors can:

  • upload videos and set them to receive automatic captions (or upload a captions SRT file),
  • create video with your web cam or screen capture,
  • create computer-generated captions for greater access,
  • allow students to view and comment on the timeline of the video,
  • track which students watch the video and for how long,
  • use videos/audio across multiple courses,
  • embed a video into a Discussion or Page
  • create quiz questions for students to take as they are watching the video which will report to the gradebook, and
  • share videos with other instructors.
