Back to Canvas Tutorials

The Canvas-Google integration (LTI 1.3) allows users to login to Google from Canvas. Instructors can create Google Assignments, which students complete in Google files but submit for grading in Canvas. Instructors can also create Collaborations, which generate a Drive folder assigned to selected students/groups and automatically shared with the instructor.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Previous options are still available for linking Canvas activities and content to Google files:

  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. Link to Google Files directly from Canvas modules.
