Using media in Canvas announcements

Did you know…

Bitmoji’s, photos, graphics, and videos embedded in Announcements do not come through in the email notification to students; however, the media elements do appear when they view Notifications in the Canvas app.

If you create a video announcement or include important media in the announcement, you may want to add a note at the bottom of the announcement informing learners that the announcement contains media, and they should go to the Announcements tool in Canvas to see the full message.


To learn more about this and other Canvas-related topics, join us on August 20-22 for Canvas On Campus: A 3 day event with Canvas representatives on campus covering a variety of topics and Canvas experts from STELAR available for instructional design and technology consultations.
