Studio is a tool that enables you to create and manage video and audio files directly in Canvas.

Perhaps your lecturers use Studio to integrate video into their teaching in Canvas, but as a student you can also use Studio to create or upload videos. You may even be asked to record a video as part of a course assessment.

Record videos directly in Studio

It is possible to create a video directly in Studio by filming yourself, recording your screen or recording audio. Studio also includes simple editing tools. Once you have created a recording, it is easy to upload it as an assignment. You can also upload a video to Studio and then share or embed it on other learning platforms, websites or blogs. More information on how to use Studio can be found in the student guide.

Record videos in Zoom and upload them in Studio

As a student at Lund University, you have access to and can use Zoom in the same way as your lecturers. In practice, this means that you can start your own meetings and record them, either with others or by yourself in a Zoom room. It is a good alternative to Studio if, for example, you need to record a presentation using PowerPoint. Zoom is particularly useful if you have a group assignment that requires recording as you can have several people in a Zoom call at the same time as you record.

Once you have saved your recording to your computer, you can easily upload it to your Studio library in Canvas and then use it in the same way as a file recorded directly in Studio.
