Do you need to share your Rice Box folder with your students? Do they need to access your files? Do they need to upload their files? (If you don’t know how to access your Rice Box, follow this link – https://docs.rice.edu/confluence/display/ITDIY/Getting+Started+with+Box+at+Rice+University .)

Here is an article by Box enabling us to do this in our Canvas LMS.

Here is the code they provided to use in any webpage.

<iframe src=”https://{custom_domain}.app.box.com/embed_widget/s/{shared link value}?view={list or icon}&sort={name, date, or size}&direction=ASC&theme={blue or gray}” width=”{pixels}” height=”{pixels}” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen></iframe>

 

I applied that for my situation in Canvas and came up with the following code.
<iframe src=”https://app.box.com/embed_widget/s/pygjkvsp5a06txfdf7q4puayrnendn40?view=icon&amp;sort=name&amp;direction=ASC&amp;theme=blue&amp;description=yes” width=”700″ height=”900″ allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”> </iframe>

This is what my students would see on my Canvas page.
