What is it?The Canvas Mobile App (Google Play, Apple) is a supplementary app for our new Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas. Students can use the Canvas mobile app to see their grades, submit assignments, view content and modules, and much more! There is also a Canvas Teacher mobile app (Google Play, Apple) that allows instructors to facilitate their courses on the go. Instructors can grade assignments, send announcements and messages, and update the course content. Managing your course has never been easier. Both of these mobile apps are available free of charge. Eric will be presenting this app at our next Technology in Transit on Wednesday, October 18!
Why this app?The Canvas mobile app is a valuable resource to both teachers and students. Both Canvas mobile, and Canvas Teacher mobile allows the user quick access to the learning materials inside or outside of the classroom. The migration to Canvas as our new Learning Environment makes mobile access one of the many benefits that Canvas provides us.
