How do I use my Homeroom in the Student app on my iOS device?

If you have an active enrollment in a Canvas for Elementary course, the Homeroom is the first thing you see when you log in to the Canvas Student app. The Homeroom helps you see what is happening in all your current courses.

You can return to your Homeroom at any time by tapping the Homeroom icon.

Notes:

  • If you do not have an active enrollment in a Canvas for Elementary course, the classic Dashboard displays.
  • Additional Canvas for Elementary Dashboard tabs will be added in future releases.
