  • In Canvas, users can embed media from Arc in any feature area with the Rich Content Editor, including Assignments, Discussions, and Pages. Media is embedded using the Arc LTI tool. You can select existing media and also upload new media through the Arc LTI tool.

    When embedding media in Canvas, comments are enabled by default, but you can choose to disable comments. Regardless of comments, embedded media views are always included in analytics.

    Embedding Media in Assignments and Discussions

    If you are an instructor and embedding media in an assignment or a discussion, you may consider disabling comments. For graded assignments, inline comments are not a replacement for submissions and never display in SpeedGrader. For instance, when embedding media in a graded discussion, students could post inline comments, but to receive a grade, they would also have to post a reply to the graded discussion. The discussion reply would display in SpeedGrader for grading. However, comments could be enabled when embedding media in a No Submission or Not Graded assignment.

    Embedding Media as a Student

    If you are a student, media you embed into a Canvas course or group is created as a new copy owned by your instructor. When embedding media, you will not be able to edit any details, so you may want to confirm the name of your media before it is uploaded. Otherwise, you can contact your instructor to modify the details of your media.

  • Arc can be used as a standalone product, but its strength lies in its integration power. Arc integrates with Canvas and allows instructors to seamlessly integrate media interaction into the classroom.

    When Arc is integrated with Canvas, all Arc users can use Arc as an external tool through the the Rich Content Editor. The Rich Content Editor is part of multiple features in Canvas including Assignments, Discussions, and Pages. For students, the Rich Content Editor is also available in course groups and in Text Entry assignment submissions.

    By default, embedded media files allow comments to be added, though comments can be removed based on user preference.

    Note: Depending on your user role, not all Arc functionality may be available through the Rich Content Editor. If your Global Navigation Menu includes a link to Arc, you can manage videos at any time directly through an Arc account. Instructors can also access Arc through the Course Navigation Menu.
