Submit Discussion Reply

MiVideo media can be embedded into the Rich Text Editor.

  1. Go to the discussion in Canvas and click the Reply button. In the Canvas text editor, you can add any text you want to, then embed your video.
  2. To embed media, select the MiVideo icon in the second row of toolbar buttons. If you do not see the MiVideo icon, click the triple dots icon.
  3. Make sure the My Media tab is selected.
