What is the Media Library tool?

This guide provides a quick explanation of the Media Library tool within Canvas.

The Media Library tool is designed to enable instructors, TFs or project site maintainers to upload audio and video files that will be streamed to students and other participants in their Canvas course or project sites. The tool also enables these users to record lectures, create video assignments, and organize content in folders for individual or departmental use.

Media library is Yale's implementation of Panopto, a media management and video capture platform. All media files are saved securely on and served from the Panopto servers, via Amazon web services.

If an instructor would like to record their in class lectures or if you have any questions about the media library please contact us at the below URL and we will be happy to work with you.
