Two ways to embed Box files in Canvas

Using the Canvas Box integration tool:

  1.  Log in to your Clemson Box account.
  2.  Open or create a new content item.
  3.  Click on the More External Tools icon in the lower toolbar (v or down arrow).
  4.  Scroll down and select Box.  This opens a popup box with a Select from Box button which you need to click on.
  5.  A new popup box appears where you can choose the item to share with Canvas.
  6.  Click on the bubble to the right of the item(s) to select and click Choose.
  7.  Click Save or Save and Publish.  You should see a link to the file.

Using the Box Embed widget:

  1.  Log in to your Clemson Box account.
  2.  Locate the item and click on the More Items ellipsis, click on More Actions, then select Embed Widget.
  3.  A popup box appears with the Embed Code already highlighted.  Click on Copy and then close the widget.
  4.  Open or create a new content item.
  5.  Click HTML Editor.
  6.  Paste the code into the editor.
  7.  Click Rich Content Editor to return.
  8.  Click Save or Save and Publish.  You should see a preview of the file.

If you update the file from within Box, the change will be reflected in Canvas.  The same happens when you download, update/save, and then upload the changed file to Box.
