For all options below, be sure to watch the movie (or movies) with the captions and check for errors and inaccuracies.

NOTE: Options 2-5 apply for videos to which you hold the copyright, have licensed, are in the public domain or fall within fair use. 

Option 1: Request videos through Course Reserves. 
For commercial films, Request Reserves from Canvas. The Libraries may already have access to or will acquire institutional licenses to streaming film with good captioning through our vendors. 
 
Option 2: Use Kaltura in Canvas. (See also: Adding Captions to an Entry)
  1. Within Canvas, click the "My Media" tab on the left to discover Kaltura, our "video management and creation tool," integrated in our Canvas interface. All faculty have a Kaltura account but if you have not visited this area before, you will be prompted to confirm your email address before proceeding. 
  2. From there, you may click, "Add New," to upload an existing video in a video format such as .mp4, .avi, or .mov.
  3. Next, click the edit icon.  
  4. Select "Captions" and the button labeled, "Upload captions file." 
Option 3: Use the Rich Content Creator in Canvas.
Option 4: Upload to YouTube.
Option 5: Create new videos.
