Back to Canvas Tutorials

The Canvas-Google integration (LTI 1.3) now has a range of ways to incorporate Google Drive files into Canvas courses and activities. These can be broken into five different areas of integration:

  1. Embed or link to Google Drive documents in the Canvas Rich Content Editor.
  2. Allow students to submit Google documents to an assignment. These can be graded and annotated in SpeedGrader.
  3. Create a Google Assignment, which lets you send a copy of a Google drive file to each assigned student. This can be a Google Doc, Sheet, or Slide.
  4. Create a Canvas Collaboration using shared Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides. Each student or group in the Collaboration has access to the shared files, along with the instructor.
  5. Link to Google Files directly from Canvas modules.
