Missing th choice to insert a link instead og embed code for a Panopto video in the editor in Canvas

In Canvas, instructor can embed Panopto content directly from the rich text editor, through the Panopto-button within the editor.But there is no possibility to insert the URL only.

Today, instructor must

  • - leave the rich text editor in Canvas and go into Panopto
  • - find the right video/podcast
  • - get hold of the URL
  • - AND set the viewer-settings correct


There should be a choiceto insert the URL directly from the Rich Text Editor in Canvas.

  • I second this! This is a feature we had in our old system and one that is very much missed by our staff.

    Adding URLs instead of embeding the player makes it much easier to keep things tidy in Canvas.
