Introduce your students to foundational research and library skills by adding instructional content directly into Canvas modules.
Use the Canvas Yuja plug-in from any text editing menu to embed library and research instruction videos onto pages, discussion forum descriptions, or assignment descriptions. Click on the plug icon and select Yuja Media from the list of options. Search for the word Hartness to see a list of the instructional videos available to embed.
These are the same videos on the Library’s YouTube Channel but using Yuja means that videos will be automatically updated. Watch a quick demo:
