Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365 LTI

Last updated: May 24, 2024

With the Google Apps and Office 365 LTI tools, instructors can share content and distribute assignments directly from within Canvas. Students can collaborate with instructors and fellow students on individual or group assignments.

The integrations with Google Apps and Office 365 provide the following functionality:

  • Embed or link to a Google Drive file or OneDrive file from any Rich Content Editor or module. Permissions will be set automatically for course members to view the linked file.
  • Submit assignments directly from Google Drive or OneDrive.
  • Create Cloud Assignments: instructors provide a template file for an assignment from their cloud drive, students automatically receive and can edit a copy of this file, and submit it.
  • Collaborate on additional file types: documents, presentations, and spreadsheets.
