Syncing Google Files with Canvas

If an assignment uses files from Google, the Google file can be synced within Canvas.  The Google Drive web service allows you to integrate Canvas with your Google Drive account. All users can authorize their Google Drive accounts for access to Google collaborations and assignment uploads.

How do I connect to Google Drive as a web service in Canvas as a student?

NOTE: Both the teacher and student must have their Google Drive synced with Canvas.

Learning Coach/Observer Accounts

A Learning Coach/Observer account allows the parent/Learning Coach to view student grades, schedules, and activity within the Canvas Online School.

To ensure the Learning Coach and/or Legal Guardian receive all school communication, is important that the Learning Coach and/or the Legal Guardian create an Observer account.
