Welcome to Canvas Studio! We hope you’re enjoying the new system. Here are details on some of the most popular Studio features.

Finding your videos:

To access your videos, log into Canvas, then click on the Studio logo in the Global Navigation.


Next, click on the “hamburger” menu in the top left-hand corner, and you’ll find your migrated videos in a separate category at the bottom of the page, labeled with either your friendly name or EMPLID and Kaltura_Archive.


Using automated captions:

 Start by opening the video you want to caption. To add new captions, click the Captions tab.


To automatically generate captions for your media, choose the spoken language [1] and click the Request button [2].


After your caption file has been queued and processed (a pretty quick process unless the video is quite long), your generated caption file will appear in the Manage Captions section.


To view more options for the caption file, click the Options icon [1]. To review and publish the captions, click the Edit link [2]. When you are editing the auto-generated caption file, the media file will automatically pause until you click the next timestamp.

You can also download [3], replace [4], or delete [5] any caption file.


Review the generated caption file and click the Publish button. Any additional changes made to the caption file after it is published will be saved automatically.


 Sharing videos:

You can share a video or audio file with any user in FSCJ's account and allow them view or edit rights. Users can view shared media in the Shared with Me drop-down link in the top left corner of the page. You can change or remove sharing permissions for media at any time.

If you allow a user to view a video or audio file, the user can view the media, have access to the sharing settings embed code and public link, share the media with others, remove themselves from having access to view the media, the details, and comments.

If you allow a user to edit a video or audio file, the user has all permissions allowed as if that user had originally uploaded the media file, including deleting the media, editing details and options, and viewing analytic insights. Think carefully before you give someone else this right.

On the My Uploads page, locate the media, click the Options icon [2], and then click the Share Media link [2]


Click the People tab.


In the Name or Email field [1], enter the name or email of a user in your institution's account. When the user appears, click the user's name [2].

If you want to share the video or audio file with another user, you can repeat this process and select as many users as necessary.


By default, a user can leave comments on your media. However, you can change this permission if necessary.

To change the permission for a user, click the user's permission drop-down menu. Again, we recommend sharing using Can View.

Creating Public Links & Embed Codes

As a media owner, you can create a public link and an embed code to be used for showing media in public websites. You can also disable the public link and embed code in order to remove access to the media file.

On the My Uploads page, locate the media, click the Options icon [2] and then click the Share Media link [2].


To create public links, click the Create Public Link button.


To share a public link, copy the public link in the Public Link field.


To use an embed code, copy the embed code in the Embed Code field.


Video Quizzing

You can learn even more about Studio features by taking a Studio class through Training & Professional Development either in person or online. Either way, you’ll be enrolled in the online class and it will remain in your Canvas dashboard as a reference.
