How do I create a hyperlink from Microsoft Office 365 in the New Rich Content Editor as a student?

If your course has enabled Microsoft Office 365, you can create a document, slide presentation, or spreadsheet in your OneDrive and then create a hyperlink to that document anywhere you can use the New Rich Content Editor in Canvas. Several features in Canvas support the New Rich Content Editor, including Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, and Quizzes.

When files are linked in the New Rich Content Editor, the link displays the exact name of the file. Please ensure your file names are correct before linking a file.

Notes: 

  • If you cannot view the Microsoft Office 365 option in the New Rich Content Editor LTI Tools menu, you can still include your file by creating a hyperlink or publishing your Microsoft Office 365 content to the web and pasting the embed code in the HTML editor.
  • PDF files added through Microsoft Office 365 that cannot be previewed in Sharepoint are not supported to preview in Canvas. To preview the PDF files, you will need to add them to course files and link to them in the New Rich Content Editor.
  • The New Rich Content Editor is currently a course opt-in feature. If the Rich Content Editor in your course does not match the images in this lesson, your course is using the classic Rich Content Editor.
