Canvas - How do I join a Google Docs collaboration?


You can join a collaboration using Google Docs in Canvas. You can view the collaboration in Canvas or you can view the document in your Google account.

Notes:

  • Each collaborator will need a Google account and will need to authorize Canvas to access his or her Google account to use Google Docs to collaborate.

  • Google Docs allows up to 50 users per collaboration, and all users can view and edit a document at the same time.
