Embedding Audio or Video from Illinois Media Space

These instructions for embedding audio or video from Illinois Media Space on Canvas are derived from instructions provided by ATLAS-IT Services for embedding IMS content on Canvas. 

    1. Record your audio or video and save as a file type that can be added to Illinois Media Space, such as mp4. 
      Note: For best results, Illinois Media Space recommends preparing videos in 1280x720 pixels and using the H.264 video codec at about 3000 kb/s.
    2. Using the editing toolbar in the text editor, click the Embed Illinois Media Space rainbow burst icon. This will take you to a popup window. 
      Note: You may need to enable cookies in your browser preferences in order to access this window. If you have already uploaded the video to the Illinois Media Space website, you will need to select your video and embed.
