Collaborations (Google Docs) vs. Canvas Pages for student content

My apologies in advance if this has already been asked and answered. I did some searching but didn't come across a similar question.


Can students concurrently edit Canvas pages (assuming we give students permission to edit them) or should we be using Collaborations and Google Docs? Should we be pushing them to Collaborations/Google Docs?


We would like to stay inside the Canvas ecosystem if possible, as we are not a Google Apps school and students would then have to be responsible for a Google account in addition to their University account.


Any thoughts or even suggestions as to another way to address this would be welcomed.


Thank you!
