Mediasite works differently in Canvas than it does in iLearn. Videos (or other content) cannot be added directly to a module or be accessed by students from the left-side navigation menu.
Instead, this guide will demonstrate how to create a Page in Canvas, and then add the Mediasite content to that page for students to access.
Creating a Page and adding Mediasite content to it
- Log in to Canvas.
- Navigate to your course in Canvas.
From the left side course navigation menu, select Pages.
Select the + Page button.
Enter a Page Title (we suggest using the title of the Mediasite content).
In the rich text editor, select the Mediasite button
- If you are uploading a brand new video, select the Upload New button. If you are re-using a video that was already uploaded to Mediasite, either because it was recorded in a Coursestream-equipped classroom or you are reusing content from a previous semester, search for the video or scroll through the list.
Select the Embed Video button to the right of your Mediasite content
Click Save & Publish.
Note: Only selecting the Save option will not publish the Page, which means students will not be able to access it
You can now add this page to a module or students can access it by clicking on Pages from the navigation menu in your course.
