Enable My Media


We recommend that you access your My Media repository through your account on the Canvas dashboard. However, on rare occasions, you may want to access it from within a course. To access My Media from within a course you must add it to the course navigation menu.


To enable My Media in a course, follow these steps

  1. Log on to the Canvas course.
  2. On the Course Navigation menu, click Settings.
  3. On the Settings page, click Navigation.
    Enable the My Media page
  4. Drag Media Gallery from the list of disabled items on the bottom to the list of enabled items at the top.
  5. (Optional) You can also rearrange the order in which the navigation items appear.
  6. Click Save.
