Dropbox Education is a collaborative workspace that helps educational departments work both internally and externally while keeping their content safe. Dropbox and Canvas have partnered to provide students and faculty with an easy way to access their Dropbox content directly from Canvas. Students can link their files stored in Dropbox to course content, or in conjunction with coursework submissions. By making collaboration across both platforms more seamless, Dropbox and Canvas are helping users to reduce their “work about work” and focus on what’s most important.
This lightweight integration lets Dropbox users select and link to files within course content or in conjunction with homework submissions. Files placed in a Dropbox folder also are accessible through a website and mobile phone application.
