Canvas and Microsoft 365
The Microsoft 365 integration with Canvas is available through Modules, Assignments, Collaborations, and more. See below for details and how-to resources.
Microsoft Teams and Canvas
Connecting a Microsoft Team to your Canvas course adds a rich set of collaboration and communication tools and is often much easier than managing access to documents via OneDrive. Learn how to set up the Microsoft Teams and Canvas integration and best practices for using Teams in your teaching.
Collaborate on a 365 document through Canvas
You can use Microsoft Office 365 to create a collaboration with a Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file. You can select individual users, groups, or both as part of a collaboration. To alert invitees about collaborations, you can create course events in the Calendar.
