Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

Now you can submit assignments directly from your Middlebury Google Drive in Canvas via the integration tool.

First, we recommend that you log out of any Google accounts. Then, login to your Middlebury account at http://go.middlebury.edu/googledrive.

Now you will want to navigate to your canvas account at http://go.middlebury.edu/canvas.

Once logged in, select one of your courses to set up the integration. You should only have to enable the integration once, then you can access your Drive in any course that has “Google Drive” in the course menu. 

Next, navigate to the menu on the left and go down until you see “ Google Drive”, click that option. Note that not all instructors choose to have “Google Drive” in their course menus. 

You will see the following message, please scroll to the bottom and find the blue and white “Authorize” button and click it.

If you have not already logged into your google drive, A google log in window should pop up, please sign in with you Middlebury account. Once logged in, please push “ allow” to allow canvas to have access to your google drive. Some users encounter problems enabling the integration. If you get an error message, or if everything seemed to work but the next time you click on “Google Drive” you are prompted to authorize the integration again, we recommend that you: 

  • Log out of Canvas
  • Log out of ALL Google accounts 
  • Log into you Middlebury Google Apps account (this the only Google account that can be integrated with Canvas) 
  • Log back into Canvas and authorize the integration again 

After clicking allow, you should be redirected back to your page and now see any Google resources that you created available on the page. Note that Google resources owned by someone else that have been shared with you may not show up. 

To open and view files, please select the file and then click the blue and white “ open” button on the bottom of the box

You have successfully integrated your Google Drive to your canvas account!

Now when you go to submit an assignment, you will see that “Google Drive” is a submission option, click it and you can navigate to your document and upload it!
