Embed using MyMedia in Canvas

Videos uploaded to your MyMedia account can be placed on any section of Canvas where the rich content editor (picture below) is available, such as discussion threads, announcements, assignments, etc. Videos placed on Canvas this way also bypass privacy settings on MyMedia so your videos can remain private on MyMedia while still being available for your students. This article will provide directions on how to place a MyMedia video on a Canvas course.
