What is Studio?

Studio is a video engagement and annotation tool within Canvas that allows instructors and students to actively collaborate through video. The Studio platform allows students and instructors to engage with video content by commenting directly on the video timeline.

You can access Studio by clicking on the Media Storage link in the left hand menu of Canvas, then clicking on the Studio link, or access it directly from your course from its left hand menu.
