How do I add an Arc media assignment in Canvas as an instructor?
You can create assignments where students can submit videos or audio files from their Arc accounts.
Arc media submissions can be created as a Text Entry or Online submission type. Both submission types allow students to access their Arc account and select a video or audio file. Currently, External Tool submission types are not supported.
- Text Entry: Allows students to embed media using the Arc icon in the Rich Content Editor
- File Uploads: Allows students to view the Arc tab as a submission option
- Students can submit Arc media assignments via the web or the Canvas by Instructure Android or iOS app.
- When an assignment using Arc is muted, submission comments are still visible to students.
