What is “My Media” and “Media Gallery”?

“My Media” displays videos and other media owned by the user currently logged-in (i.e., media the student or instructor has uploaded). Media in the My Media Tool are not specific to a particular site.


Using Kaltura (the media server integrated with Canvas), instructors can record lectures directly from their computer webcam, screen recordings or upload existing media directly into Canvas for immediate access by students. For example, instructors can include video or audio in an assignment or ‘publish’ a video file to the course Media Gallery for all in the class to see.
