I just want to make sure that if I link Google drive to canvas if I would be opening my drive for all to see or will it still be kept private and allow only what I share to canvas to be seen.
Hi Maegan Fletcher Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. When you connect your Google account inside of Canvas, you are the only one who will see your personal files. If you have your course set up where other students can also sign in to Google, they will only see their personal files. As you indicate, though, if you are using a file from your Google account as part of an assignment that you want to share with students (for example, fill out and submit back to you), then that file would be viewable by them. Here are some Guides:
How do I create a cloud assignment with a Google Drive file?
How do I view my Google Drive files in Canvas as an instructor?
How do I upload a file from Google Drive as an assignment submission in Canvas?
How do I submit a cloud assignment with Google Drive?
How do I view my Google Drive files in Canvas as a student?
How do I create a hyperlink or embed a file from Google Drive into the Rich Content Editor as a student?
How do I connect to Google Drive as a web service in Canvas as a student?
I hope this info will help, Maegan.
