The above privilege allows us to creatively enhance our delivery when building curriculum! With the choice of embedding and/or or linking all content from G Drive; let's invigorate our Canvas instruction!


 Use the steps below to implement pictures, videos, PPTs, Word docs and more; via the "HTML Editor:"

  • Login to @proxlearn.com email

  • Click on "New" and then choose "File Upload"

* Keep in mind: We can also drag & drop files directly from "File Explore(Windows)" or "Finder(Mac)" into G Drive*


  • Adjust the Privacy Settings immediately after we upload as best practice
    • Select the uploaded content of choice to embed and/or link by clicking once! Next, click the paperclip to "get the shareable link:"

    • Choose "Embed Item" / *Only an option if our content has fully converted in G Drive*
    • Copy the Embed code
