Canvas – Add file from OneDrive to Module

Linking file(s) from your Onedrive to your canvas course


why would you want to do this?

There are several benefits to link a file from OneDrive to Canvas your canvas course. The reason I personally like to do this is to save time and linking files from OneDrive to Canvas makes it a one stop shop. If you link a file to your Canvas course, then if you change the file on OneDrive it will automatically update it on your Canvas course(s) you have the file linked to.

how to do this

1. Select the + sign on the right hand side of the Module
2. Select External Tool from the drop down menu

Click on the Office 365 link.

3. Select the checkbox to the left of the file you want to link,
and then select attach file.
4. Select Add Item and the bottom right of the Add Item window
5. Verify your file is there. This is my test document I uploaded.
