Click Go to Drive if you're not already signed in.
Sign in with your NetID and password credentials.
If you don't have a media folder already created in your Drive account, create one by clicking the + New button on the left and selecting Folder.
Select the media folder where you will store the media you're going to embed in your Canvas course. Click the Share Embedded Content icon (a little person with a plus sign next to it) in the upper-right corner of the Drive window. A "Share with people and groups" window opens.
On the bottom under "Get link," make sure it indicates that "Anyone on the internet with this link can view." If not, click the Change link, then from the drop-down list, select Anyone with the link.
Click the Done button.
Upload media to your shared Google Drive folder and copy link
Drag a media file from your computer to the shared folder open in Google Drive. Your media will upload to Google Drive. A progress indicator will be visible in the lower right. After your file is done uploading, Google Drive will display an "upload complete" message.
Double-click your uploaded video in Google Drive. You may see a message indicating the video is still processing--if so, wait until it is done.
After you're able to open the video, click the three-dot menu in the upper-right side of the screen, then select Share.
Click the Copy Link button to copy a link to the video.
