How do I connect to Google Drive as a web service in Canvas?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.
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 students can upload an assignment from Google Drive.
If you need to create a new Google Drive account, please note that you may experience a delay with the Google integration in Canvas until Google has fully completed the account process.
Note: Canvas currently has two integrations: Google Drive and Google Docs. Only Google Drive needs to be authorized. If Google Docs already exists as a registered service in your account, you will also have to authorize Google Drive.
