Your myCIT account provides you with 1TB of data storage. For certain assignments in Canvas, you can  upload files against an assignment directly from google drive, which may be useful to you if you need to upload larger file sizes, or if you have already stored your work in google drive.

Please note that this ability is controlled by your lecturer and will only be enabled for certain assignments.

To do this

1. For the assignment in question, click into the assignment and click on the "Submit Assignment" button in the top-right corner
