Special thanks to Heidi Busch, Conrad Pegues, Sam Richardson,  Erin Weber, and Jordan Bell for their work on these videos. 

In Canvas, you can embed videos (with the embed code) anywhere with a Rich Content Editor - discussion boards, pages, assignments, quizzes, and announcements. Select the "Insert/edit media" icon that looks like a film real with a play button and paste the embed code under "Embed". 

You can copy and past the Direct Link just about anywhere - emails, Word Docs, a syllabus, an external link in a Canvas module.
