Whether your course content is pdfs, docs, links, videos, or others, you can easily add them to your Canvas course page for your students to access. You can also add files and folders from Google Drive accounts.
If all you need to do is share resources with your students, you could take advantage of Google Drive.
If you prefer to use Google Drive, you can also share files and folders in a variety of ways.
One key thing you may want to consider when sharing files is to give students a key in the title of the file or folder as to when the piece needs to be read by. An example of this could be: "03_10_filename.pdf" - this tells students to read the file by March 10th.
