    How do I use Canvas Studio?

    An Arc account allows you to manage all your Arc media at any time. You can view, share, and comment on any uploaded video or audio media file.

    When Arc is integrated with Canvas, users with instructor roles can also view media within their course.

    Most commonly, Arc accounts are integrated with Canvas and can be accessed through your institution's Global Navigation Menu. However, Arc can also be accessed through a separate Arc site (most commonly for admins).

    To learn about available keyboard shortcuts in Arc, view the Arc Media Player Keyboard Shortcuts PDF.

    Note: If your Canvas Global Navigation Menu does not include a link to Arc, and your institution did not provide you with an email to log into the Arc site, you can always access Arc through the Rich Content Editor Arc icon, though full functionality is limited. If you are an instructor, you can also access Arc through the Course Navigation Menu.
