Once a Canvas Administrator has set up the TechSmith Relay LTI integration, instructors can add content from their TechSmith Relay library to a course without leaving the Canvas LMS. This guide explains two methods for adding TechSmith Relay media to a Canvas course using LTI integration.
Add TechSmith Relay Media as an External Tool with Gradebook Integration
This method is great for adding videos to Assignments in your Canvas course. Videos added as an External Tool that include a quiz can send results directly into the course gradebook.
Add TechSmith Relay Media Using the Rich Text Editor Button (No Gradebook Integration)
Using the Rich Text Editor button is a great way to add TechSmith Relay videos to Announcements or Pages in your course. It is available anywhere that you use the Rich Text Editor. If you do add a video this way, it is important to note that TechSmith Relay will not send data like quiz results or viewing percentages to the course gradebook.
Before you get started: Log in to Canvas and navigate to the course where you'd like to add TechSmith Relay media.
Use this method of adding media to your course if you would like to have TechSmith Relay quiz grades entered into the Canvas gradebook.
The Rich Text Editor button is a great way to quickly add TechSmith Relay media to items in your course. It is most useful when used with a course Announcement or Page. While TechSmith Relay will still collect viewing analytics and quiz results, this method does not send either to the course gradebook
