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 "embed" icon that looks like a cloud with two carrot brackets. Paste the embed code. You can copy and past the Direct Link just about anywhere - emails, Word Docs, a syllabus, an external link in a Canvas module. Contact us for more help.

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