canvas and Chrome Books, MS Office or Google Docs?

Hi Team,

        I have just recently started using canvas with chromebooks.  I had put in a few files such as a MS Word Resume for my students to fill in and a budget on an excel spreadsheet.  A number of my students thought they were turning in the spreadsheet  with their data input, but it was my base document missing their data.  I advised them that they needed to download the form because I think they were working within Google Docs and it never saved their data?  Not sure.

 

So, my question is, is it better to provide something in a Google Doc file in canvas when using chromebooks or is it better to stick with a MS Office document?

 

Thanks for any and all advice,

                                          Shawn
