Change 'GoogleDoc' assingment submission tab to 'GoogleDrive'

    Most of my students in grades 9-12 are familiar with Google Classroom and the concept of their Google Drive folder systems, but are often confused when they try to submit a Google Slides, Google Sheets, picture, or pdf file assignment in Canvas from their GDrive using the 'GoogleDoc' tab (thinking that it can only be a GoogleDoc).  To alleviate the student confusion and eliminate the myriad explanations each semester, I'd request that the tab label on the assingment submission page be changed from 'GoogleDoc' to 'GoogleDrive' since it does, in essence, bring up their entire Drive from which to choose any file format stored there as an assignment submission.
