Canvas - Integrations - Google Apps

The Google App integration for Canvas is approved for use within the Digital Learning Environment (DLE) for institutions with institutional Google Apps licenses.


This Google App integration, created by Instructure, has five main points of interoperability that promote great teaching and learning:

1) Single sign-on: use your Canvas login to sign into Google (in process)

2) Google Drive embedding and linking: easily embed documents from your Google Drive anywhere you use the Rich Content Editor

3) Google Docs as Assignments:

 • Students can submit Google Docs as Assignments

 • Teachers can use a Google Doc to give an Assignment, and send a copy of that document to each assigned student

 • Teachers can grade submitted student assignments in Speedgrader by editing or annotating the Google Doc

4) Google Drive Collaborations: students can use Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides for a Canvas Collaboration

5) Modules: Teachers can link to live Google Files in their Canvas Modules
