Google Apps for Education:
Canisius is partnering with Google to allow the college’s students to use Google Apps for Education, which includes Gmail to manage email accounts, as well as Google Calendar, Documents and Spreadsheets, and Google Talk. The system boasts a number of new features including indexed email search, enhanced spam filtering, calendaring, tagging capabilities for tracking emails, chatting options, and unlimited cloud storage.

About your Canisius Gmail:
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.

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.
