Add Recording Links to Canvas Modules



An easy way to manage recording links is by placing them in a Module, alternatively you can also place these links on a page but the module offers the most simple solution.

  • Start by retrieving a link to a recording by following the directions found in Making Recordings Public.
  • Log in to Canvas and navigate to the course where you will place your link(s)


Click on the Modules link in the left navigation panel.

If you have not added a Module click the Add a New Module button in the right panel.

For this example we have already created a module called Recordings where we will place the links.

Click the Add item to Module link at the bottom of the module.

From the popup window select External URL from the dropdown menu

Paste the link that you copied in the URL textbox and give it a title in the Page Name textbox

Click the Add Item button to finish the process.

Repeat adding the links if needed until all the Recording links are in Canvas.

You module will now contain links to those Recordings and your students can click on them to view them again.
