How do I use the Canvas app on my Android phone?
The Canvas by Instructure app helps students and instructors access their courses and groups while they are away from a computer browser. The app provides functionality to view and participate in a course or group, as well as view To-Do items, Notifications, Messages, and Grades.
Note: Not all Canvas features are supported on the app at this time.
