Some instructors may require that you upload a video to post to a discussion board or to submit as an assignment. For these kinds of activities you will use a suite of media tools integrated with UNM Canvas: Kaltura My Media, Kaltura Media Mashups and Kaltura Express Capture (webcam only) and Kaltura Capture Desktop Recorder. Note: Not all courses require video content, so consult the syllabus and if you have questions, be sure to ask your instructor.
My Media is a private, cloud-based library for your media files. It can be found under your Account.

How to Submit a Video Assignment
PRO TIP: Videos can take a long time to upload to UNM Canvas, so make sure that you leave yourself enough time to both create the video, upload it, and submit the assignment before it is considered late. It is also a good idea to return to the assignment to check the video to make sure that both the audio and visual are working correctly so that you can redo the video if need be.
