How do I link to a YouTube video in a Discussion reply as an instructor?
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 add a YouTube video in a Discussion reply by adding the URL of the video as a link to the response.
Click the discussion title.
Paste the URL in the text box and click the Insert Link button.
Note: You can also automatically insert a YouTube video by copying and pasting the link directly into the Rich Content Editor. However, it is better to create an accessible hyperlink by typing the YouTube video title in the Rich Content Editor, highlighting the title, and then inserting the YouTube link.
