With Google Drive, you can open your files from your computer’s Drive folder on the desktop or from your browser. Files you create with Google Docs open in your browser or mobile app.

Syncing Google Drive 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.
