In this module, we'll cover how to create and edit the basic content types in Canvas.
Canvas has many useful content types built in, and many more can be added using external tools. This module covers the content types built in to Canvas. Here's a brief overview; we'll dive in deeper later on in the module.

There are a few different ways to upload your recordings to Canvas, we'll cover each method below depending on if you are submitting to an assignment, or looking to upload and embed your video on a page for everyone in the course to view.

Content can easily be copied from one Canvas course to another. You can choose whether to import the course content in its entirety, or select only certain content to be imported.
