How to Delete a Kaltura Media Playlist in Canvas

Here's how to delete a Kaltura media playlist from a course in Canvas.

A screenshot of the "edit media gallery" menu.If you've created a playlist, it's immediately visible to students in the course's Media Gallery. There's no additional step to publish it, like you would with a video. Accordingly, there's no way to "hide" a playlist from students, or create it in advance before you want them to see it. The only way to remove students' access to a playlist is to delete it. Here's how to do that.

  1. Within Canvas, enter the course that contains the playlist you want to delete.
  2. Click "Media Gallery" in the left navigation.
  3. Click the icon represented by three horizontal lines in the upper right corner of the page ("channel actions") and select "Edit."
  4. Click the "Playlists" tab near the top of the page.
  5. Click the trashcan icon in the row of the playlist you want to delete.
