Fully integrate Google docs to allow annotations

Teachers can currently only annotate PDF, Word...for Google to truly be integrated into onCampus teachers need to be able to annotate Goggle documents turned in by students.

    As a word of warning to anyone who would have a student submit a Google doc link for an assignment, the students can still make changes. We found students turning in blank docs to make the turn in deadline, then filling it in later before the teacher graded it or correcting their submission. Turning in a google doc in the online submission module does not lock or restrict student access to that document at all like it does in other solutions. If you want that type of functionality, then you need to use the GSuite Assignment Tool add-on which can be turned on as a learning tool for Blackbaud's LMS.

    Students can currently add a Google Drive link as a submission for assignments and share with their teachers. Teachers can then open the Drive link and annotate the document as they would any Google Drive link. We are continuing to explore how to enhance Google Drive functionality throughout the system.
