OneDrive in Canvas for StudentsEstimated Reading Time: 2 Minutes
Students may need to view or turn in Canvas files in Clemson Microsoft OneDrive. This article will cover:
- Viewing your Instructor’s OneDrive file for the first time
- OneDrive File Sharing Settings
- Uploading your OneDrive document into Canvas
VIEWING YOUR INSTRUCTOR’S ONEDRIVE FILE FOR THE FIRST TIME
The first time your instructor shares a OneDrive file with you, you may need to log in to your OneDrive to see the file.
Here is a sample of a file you might see in Canvas. Click on it to open it in OneDrive.
If you are already logged in to Clemson OneDrive, the file will open. If you have not or are not logged in to OneDrive, it may ask you to log in. Put in your username @clemson.edu (no “g”). Click Next.
Once you click Next, you will see a second sign in screen with your firstname.lastname@example.org. Fill in your Password. And click Sign in.
Now you should see the file.
HOW TO SET THE SHARE OPTION IN ONEDRIVE FOR A FILE YOU NEED TO UPLOAD IN CANVAS
Log in to your OneDrive.
Navigate to the file you want to turn in as a Canvas Assignment. Click beside it to select it. Click on Share. Click on People you specify can edit.
Now click on People in Clemson University with the link. And click Apply. (This is the recommended option. But it is not the only option. You may click here for an article on the other options.)
Click on the module where you want to share a OneDrive document. In this case it will be an Assignment.
Click on Tools, One Drive (or View All, then One Drive). Or Apps (Power Plug icon) then select One Drive. The first time you do this, you may need to add the One Drive app by clicking View All and selecting One Drive. You may need to Log in to One Drive with your Clemson user name and password (as in the previous step).
Once you open and log in to One Drive, you will see a list of your OneDrive files and folders.
Navigate to the file you would like to turn in. (You should have previously shared it. If you did not your professor may not be able to see it.) Select it and click on Attach File.
You will see your file name in the Text Entry box. Click Submit Assignment.
You will get a notification that it has been submitted.
