How do I find my institution's URL to access the MagicMarker app on my iPad?
Every institution uses a specific URL to access Canvas. Institutions follow a URL structure of [your institution name].instructure.com or canvas.[your institution name].edu. This URL is required to access Canvas mobile apps, and this lesson will show you how to locate your institution's URL.
Direct Access to Canvas URL
Some institutions will use a direct link to their Canvas account, which makes the Canvas URL easy to find. In most cases you can hover over the Canvas link and view the URL, or you can click the link to be taken directly to the page.
Redirect to Canvas URL
Some institutions may choose to have another domain redirect the Canvas URL, especially if the institution has an existing portal for student courses. You may have to sign into your institution's internal system before accessing Canvas.
As an example, if students hovers over and clicks the Canvas Login link at Utah State University, they'll be directed to online.usu.edu, which is the university's general online course landing page.
