How do I enable a podcast feed for a Discussion topic in my course?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
You can insert a podcast feed for your Discussion topics. A podcast is a way to distribute digital content for download on the Internet. A podcast feed is the file you use to distribute your Discussion for users who want to subscribe through external podcasting channels.
Note: The Record/Upload Media Comment tool in the Rich Content Editor must be used for updates to be added to the podcast feed. Text-only discussion posts are not included in the feed.
Click the Add Discussion button.
Create your discussion by utilizing the following options:
- Enter your topic title in the topic title field.
- Use the Rich Content Editor to format your content.
- Create a podcast feed for the discussion by clicking the Enable podcast feed checkbox.
