This page introduces these student collaboration tools in Canvas:
The Instructor creates and accesses student groups inside the Canvas course. The student can access his/her groups either from the global navigation or from a course site. The "Groups" feature allows the students in a group to see and edit each other's work. The Instructor can view, edit and delete all groups' work. This feature works well if a class activity or project is expected to be developed by group members individually and then combined as a group. Note that the instructor cannot grade individual or group work simply by setting up Groups. Grading is possible through Group Assignments and Group Discussions.

Microsoft OneNote is a digital notebook tool. It can be integrated into your Canvas course, or used as a stand-alone application. OneNote is part of R-MC Office 365, and can be accessed and managed through the R-MC intranet. All documents and collaborative work in OneNote are automatically saved and sync'ed in one’s R-MC OneDrive. (Note: It has been reported that sometimes there is a system delay in saving documents in OneNote. Student collaborations on OneNote may not be saved or sync'ed in a timely manner.)
