How do I publish videos, audio files, or images in Media Gallery?

You may publish video or audio files that you have saved in My Media in the Media Gallery of your Canvas course.

Tip: For steps to upload a file to Media Gallery at the same time as publishing it, see How do I upload a video, audio file, or image to My Media or Media Gallery?

Select Media Gallery from the Course Navigation Menu.

Note: To access the Media Gallery tool in a McIntire School of Commerce course site, select McIntire Kaltura from the Course Navigation Menu instead of Media Gallery.

If any playlists have been created in the course, the Playlists tab will display as the first page.  If this is the case, select the Media tab to go to it.

Note: The Media tab will display with the number of files currently included in it, e.g., 6 Media.

Select Add Media.

Note: On mobile devices or small screens, the Add Media button displays as a plus (+) icon.

Select and publish your media.

  1. Select the checkbox(es) for your file(s) to publish.
  2. Scroll up near the top of the screen and select Publish.

View success message.

Whether you can view your media in the course depends on whether the course's Media Gallery allows you to publish content immediately, or if the file is waiting to be approved.

Access a file published immediately.

If you have permission to publish files in the course, a message will appear at the top of the screen indicating that your media was published successfully.

Your file(s) will be available in the Media Gallery's Media tab. You may select a file to view it.

Note: A file scheduled to be available at specific dates may not appear, in spite of the success message. Scheduled files must be published from My Media, as described in How do I schedule a file's availability in Media Gallery?

Wait for moderated media to be published.

By default, student content in Media Gallery is Moderated. This means that an instructor must review and approve files to publish them in the course. If your media needs to be approved, a message Your additional media will be presented once it is ready and approved will appear at the top of the screen, and you will need to wait for your instructor to approve the file for it to display.
