Google Apps for Education:
Canisius has a Google Workspace for Education license, which includes Gmail to manage email accounts, as well as Google Calendar, Documents and Spreadsheets, and other Google enterprise applications.  Enrolled students are each provided with a Google Workspace account, and alumni who complete degrees or certificates have that account available for a limited period after graduation.  

Your Canisius Gmail address is your official email address at the College. This is the email address to which the College and your instructors will send important notifications.  It is also the email address that will receive copies of any messages sent to you from within the Desire2Learn Learning Management System.

Throughout your time at Canisius, you may store files in your Canisius Google account, and it can be a helpful place to put previous semesters' assignments and course documents.  However, anticipate having to download this content and store it somewhere else after graduation.

Class Sharing Possibilities

Here are some tutorials for how you might share files (and folders) in your courses.  But before choosing any one of these, consult your course syllabus or other assignment instructions.  Has your professor approved, or directed that you use Google Drive to share files?  Also,  see if your professor has chosen one of these as the course standard. 

Simple sharing: upload and share a video or audio file with your professor.
