How do I attach a media comment to a message?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.
You can record or upload video and audio files as part of your Conversations messages.
For more information about supported uploaded media types, please see the Canvas Media Files lesson.
Note: Attachments appear in your user files in the Conversation Attachments folder and count against the files limit for your account.
