How do I start a collaboration in a group?

You can create collaborations within your groups. Canvas defaults to using Google Docs. Google Docs allows you to add up to 50 users per collaboration, and all users can view and edit a document at the same time.

Depending on your institution's preference, you may be able to create a Google Drive collaboration or create a Microsoft Office 365 collaboration in groups as well.

To create a collaboration document using Google Docs, you will first need to name the document [1], create a description [2], and select who you will be collaborate with [3]. Click the Start Collaborating button [4].
