Canvas embraces Google for Education, so you can put your arms around both

We know your teachers love using Google for simple content creation and cloud assignments, but did you know that Canvas loves Google, too? That’s why we developed a seamless integration that makes it easy for teachers and students to keep using Google while enjoying all the benefits of a modern, open, easy-to-use, and fully-supported LMS. (Think of it as a group hug for all your favorite classroom technology.)

See for yourself how Canvas and Google—the two applications teachers love most—support complex learning with simple tools.

WITH THE SEAMLESS CANVAS/GOOGLE INTEGRATION, YOU CAN:

Enable single sign-on. When you log in to Canvas, you’re also logged in to Google.
Use the course content you’ve already created. Google Docs automatically become Canvas content, so you don’t have to rebuild course materials. Simply link or embed files from Google Drive anywhere you use the Rich Content Editor in Canvas—with features like Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Modules, Pages, Quizzes, and the Syllabus.
Create cloud assignments with Google Docs. It’s as simple as creating a Google Doc and sharing it with your students. Then, they can submit their work in Canvas with a single click, and teachers can use the Canvas SpeedGrader for fast and easy grading with rubrics.
Collaborate with Google Drive. Students can share, view, and contribute to Canvas Collaborations using Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides.

GET STARTED WITH GOOGLE. GO FURTHER WITH CANVAS

GET STARTED WITH GOOGLE. GO FURTHER WITH CANVAS

If you’re like most teachers, you need more than an easy way to create and share files. You need an LMS that simplifies teaching and learning by connecting all the digital tools you use in one easy place—tools that leverage the reliability, security, and anytime/anywhere access of the cloud, while making it easy to create engaging, individualized, and measurable learning experiences for your students.
And when your LMS is Canvas, the Google content and tools you already use fit snugly inside.
