Microsoft OneDrive LTI is available in Canvas

8 May 2023

The Microsoft OneDrive Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) App integrates with Canvas to bring Microsoft OneDrive and Microsoft Office 365 for teaching and learning.

The Microsoft OneDrive LTI App offers a range of features that simplify file sharing and collaboration for teachers and students. Users can easily attach Office 365 files such as Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and Excel spreadsheets from within the Canvas Rich Content Editor. Additionally, OneDrive LTI allows for the distribution of Office 365 cloud assignments and offers the ability to view and organise personal and course Microsoft Office files. Collaborative projects can be created to enable course members to work together on shared documents in real-time.

With OneDrive LTI, users can access and edit their OneDrive files directly within Canvas, without the need to switch between multiple platforms or applications. This integration streamlines workflows, saves time, and enhances productivity for teachers and students.
