|Submitting a Google Doc Assignment in Canvas From Your Google Drive
When a teacher provides a copy of a Google Doc for an assignment and you need to submit your completed Google Doc, you can do so from the Google Doc option in the assignment submission. See the instructions below.
- If you are working from a personal computer, you will first need to make sure your GCA Google account is synced in a Chrome browser.
- If you are logged into a GCA-issued Chromebook or logged into a personal Chromebook with ONLY the GCA Google account, continue with the instructions below.
