Teaching on the Go with the Canvas Mobile App

Online Learning Support

Time is an instructor’s most valuable resource. Save time and use Canvas more efficiently from your mobile device with the Canvas Teacher app. The Canvas Teacher App allows teachers to manage their courses while on the go, from inside the office or at a favorite coffee shop. The app provides quick access to grading, communicating with students, and facilitating the three most frequently used tasks of an instructor: assignments, discussion posts, and quizzes.

While not a complete substitute for the full version of Canvas, the Canvas teacher app does allow for a wide range of course-related activities. From inside the app, instructors can:

  • Post announcements
  • Create, edit, and reply to non-graded discussions
  • Edit and reply to graded discussions
  • Create and edit pages
  • Edit assignments
  • Upload or delete files
  • View and message people in a course
  • Use Student View

The Canvas Teacher App is available for both Android and iOS. CIRT’s Online Learning Support Team is happy to help you install or troubleshoot the app. Additionally, Series 2 of our microlearning video series called Canvas Bites walks new users through basic tasks. Take a look at the first video below, and check out our Canvas Bites playlist on YouTube. We look forward to taking you through Canvas one bite at a time!
