Studio is Canvas’ native audio and video tool, which allows instructors and students to communicate collaboratively. Studio promotes course engagement, offers reporting analytics about video views, and has robust features that allow users to comment directly on the media timeline. The Canvas Studio Overview will provide information for you and your students to access Canvas Studio, create media, and all the features available within the media.

Studio media can be placed in announcements, discussions, or assignments, and will completely replace Kaltura, including CaptureSpace Lite and My Media. With Studio, YouTube videos can be uploaded to be shared. Screen captures and self-recorded videos can also be created. Closed captioning options are available on self-created media.
