A lot of teachers want students to turn in a Google Doc as a homework assignment. This document will show you how to let student turn in an Google doc assignment (so you can annotate) without having to download the Google Doc as a Word Document before uploading. Be aware that if a individual user has registered Google Docs with their account this will happen in the backend (How do I connect to Google Drive as a web service in Canvas?).

1. Create an Assignment in Canvas and Change Submission type to Online -> Website URL
