The Microsoft 365 integration with Canvas is available through Modules, Assignments, Collaborations, and more. See below for details and how-to resources.

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.


Access OneDrive Files

Individuals can access their OneDrive folder via a Canvas site's Course Navigation Menu, if the Microsoft 365 navigation link has been made available in the menu.


Connect to 365 through the Rich Content Editor

If your course has enabled Microsoft Office 365, you can link documents from your OneDrive folder anywhere you can use the Rich Content Editor in Canvas. The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus).


Create online assignments with 365

You can create an online assignment that embeds a document directly from your Microsoft Office 365 (OneDrive) folder. Accepted assignment types are Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.

Instructors: Create a cloud assignment with a Microsoft Office 365 file
