How do I start a collaboration in a group?

You can create collaborations within your groups. Canvas defaults to using Google Docs. Google Docs allows you to add up to 50 users per collaboration, and all users can view and edit a document at the same time.

Depending on your institution's preference, you may be able to create a Google Drive collaboration or create a Microsoft Office 365 collaboration in groups as well.
