Canvas Google Drive Integration Deprecation

Question

Why doesn't BGSU support the Canvas Google Drive integration? 

Answer

Instructure (Canvas) has communicated that it will deprecate and eventually eliminate it's legacy Google Drive integration.

It is recommended that all instructors and students use the Office 365 Canvas integration for the submission of assignments and/or file collaboration because BGSU officially offers and supports the Office 365 suite of applications for instruction and course work. Those currently using the Google Drive integration are advised to transition to Office 365 as the Google integration experiences numerous issues that Information Technology Services (ITS) cannot support.  

Instructure has announced that there will be no resolution to the Google integration issues in the near future with the possibility that it may be removed altogether.  No decision timeline has been published.  

To begin using Office 365 for collaborations, follow the instructions in this article
