New in OAKS for the Fall Semester — Google Integration for Students

This Fall we are launching Google Apps integration for OAKS. This integration will allow students to login and access their Google Apps email, calendar, blog and Google Drive from a widget on every course homepage. In addition, they can access files in their Google Drive when submitting to the OAKS Dropbox. When they are in the Dropbox and click Add File they will have a new option available called Google Docs. This will take a file from their Google Drive and upload it into the assignment submission area.

As of now this is only available to those with a email address. Make sure to tell your students about this new feature. Tutorials for your students will be available on the Student Computing Support blog (
