Step 3: After you find and select your video file ('Photo Library' on iOS or 'Gallery' on Android) your video will be uploaded to Studio. A blue progress bar will appear showing you the progress of your upload. Once the upload is complete the video will process and you may see three gray dots go back and forth after a while if a thumbnail does not appear of your video click the blank video with the gray dots and your video should open. If the video is still processing you should see a white rotating circle with a percentage number indicating its progression.

To change the title of your video you will click on the thumbnail of your video from the Studio library page then select the "Details" tab and edit the title. To edit captions click the "Captions" tab and then select from the drop down menu the language that you were speaking in the video. Then click the "Request" button. This will take a few minutes to process but the tool will generate captions within an estimated 85% accuracy. After the captions are generated you will have the opportunity of editing the captions and correct any flaws. Once finished editing you will click the Publish button to save any changes made. 

Please note: captions are required for accessibility reasons

Please Note: You can upload your video to your Studio library using the Canvas Student mobile app but you currently cannot embed videos into discussion posts using the mobile app. You must log into the student portal using your device's web browser and access Canvas by clicking on the My Classes link. If you are still unable to embed the video into your discussion post you must use a web browser on a computer to do so instead.
