Google Drive App Administrator Guide (Enterprise Only)

Google Drive LTI App

The Google Drive app is a new Resource App from Google, now available in Schoology from the App Center. Resource apps enable you to integrate third-party content directly into the Resource Center. This means that all of your personal, shared, public and external instructional resources are consolidated in one place. With this integration you can:

  • Access your Google Drive content from your Schoology Resources.
  • Add Google Drive content directly within Schoology and sync to Google Drive.
  • Add content from the Google Drive app to a course or resources.
  • Import your Google Drive content directly within courses and groups.
  • Use as an alternative to the Google Drive Resource App from Schoology.
  • Control how users in your organization share Google Drive files.
  • Add your Google Drive content to updates, discussions, assignments, pages, and tests.
  • Accept submissions from students who are connected to Google Drive.
  • The Google Drive app by Google can be used as an alternative to the Google Drive Resource App by Schoology.
  • The Google Drive app is a separate app from the Google Assignments App by Google.
