Canvas - How do I embed a video?

In the rich content editor, Canvas allows you to embed videos directly from Youtube, Vimeo, and My Media (Kaltura). But if you can get an iframe from another source, the bottom directions will allow you to embed that in your pages as well. Using this option keeps your students in Canvas, in your course.

In the New Rich Content Editor in a Canvas Page (Assignment, Discussion, etc) click on the Insert and find Embed in the list, or click on the cloud icon.

A second box will open to paste the Embed Code in. Click Submit.
