Mediasite is available in Canvas

Mediasite brings easy-to-use instructional capture and video publishing to Canvas. From any course, instructors can use My Mediasite to capture or upload video lectures, screencasts and tutorials. Instructors can automatically publish to designated courses or embed video content anywhere within Canvas. To access your My Mediasite portal within Canvas, select the "My Mediasite" link in your course's navigation menu.

Note: The My Mediasite course navigation button will only be visible to Instructor and TA roles. Students will not see this button. With the Mediasite LTI integration for Canvas, students can access content and stream Mediasite presentations without leaving the Canvas course. Mediasite provides an engaging learning experience with powerful video search, interactivity and sharing tools.
