Welcome to the Fall 2016 Semester!

New and Returning UNTHSC Students, welcome to the Fall 2016 Semester! Your UNTHSC Canvas team has some minor Canvas updates to announce as you begin the semester.

New Integrations

Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and UNTHSC Onedrive are now integrated in Canvas. These integrations easily allow you to browse files from these services directly within Canvas when submitting an assignment.

How Do I connect these services (Box, Dropbox, Onedrive)?

When you access an assignment and click on the Submit button, several tabs will become available (see below image). Click on the designated tab and sign into the service to access your files. Google Doc tab will only be available if the service has been connected (see below).

Canvas Cloud Integrations

How Do I Connect Google Drive?

Google Doc/Drive requires a different method. Follow the How do I connect to Google Drive as a web service in Canvas guide. In addition to submitting assignment documents directly from Google Drive, you can start new collaborations with classmates directly within Canvas if you instructor has enabled this tool. If you do not see the Collaborations link in the course navigation area, request your instructor to enable this tool.
