All faculty and staff now have Google Drive provided as part of Google Apps for Education. This is a secure, password-protected online (“cloud”) storage space where users can store files to be accessed in a variety of places and on various devices. Google Drive also allows users to share large or numerous files that are impractical as email attachments. An easy-to-use productivity toolset, including Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms, makes collaborating on projects much easier than passing documents back and forth via email.
Your Google Drive space can be found by clicking the link under “My Applications” in the MyCanisius navigation launchpad (lefthand menu, after logging in.)
See this link for details on your Canisius Google Drive space, including possibilities for how you may use it to save time and effort: https://wiki.canisius.edu/x/NIAdAQ.
Both Turnitin and Qualtrics have received updated interfaces. Turnitin is a toolset for teaching writing, including (but not limited to) a plagiarism checker option. Qualtrics is used for online surveys and web-based forms. In both cases, all tools and features have been retained, but are organized into easier-to-use screens.
For details on Turnitin, see our Turnitin wiki page: https://wiki.canisius.edu/x/9wXj
