How do I link the Media Gallery tool to a Canvas Module?

Instructors can link to the Canvas Media Gallery tool in a Canvas module but CANNOT link to an individual video in the Media Gallery tool.

Instructors that want to link to an individual video in the Modules tool should first embed the video in a Canvas Page and then link the Page in the Canvas Module.

Directions for embedding a My Media video in a Canvas text box (example: Pages) can be found here:
