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.

Note: The URL for Canvas Network is learn.canvas.net. The URL for Free-For-Teachers (FFT) is canvas.instructure.com.
