Connect Student Drive Accounts to Schoology

Through the district, students have both Google Drive and OneDrive accounts. To learn more about how to access and use these accounts, please visit the Student G-Suite page and the Student Office 365 page. Both Google Drive and OneDrive offer online storage for any files students might create in class.

Students can easily submit assignments from their drives to Schoology. Schoology has some useful tools to help make the submission process easy.

  • OneDrive Resource App Connection

    Students can connect to their OneDrive as a Resource App in Schoology. This means that Schoology will establish a connection with the drive account, so students don’t have to download an assignment from cloud storage to upload it to Schoology. To add a OneDrive account as a Resource, do the following steps:

    • Sign in to Schoology and click on the word Resources along the top. In the drop-down menu, select “Apps”. supporting image of resource drop down menu with apps highlighted

    • You should get the choice to open a Google Drive or a OneDrive. Choose the drive your assignment is in and find the document you want in the list on the right-hand side. All the drive’s folders and files will be listed, so you might need to click on a folder to open it and find the file inside.
