How do I view Discussions in the Student app on my Android device?

The Canvas Student app helps you keep track of all course discussions. You can also view newly created discussions or changes to discussions in the Notifications tab.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Notes:

  • Rubrics are not currently supported for graded discussions in the Canvas Student app.
  • The Course Navigation menu matches the browser version of your Canvas course. If Discussions is not available in your Course Navigation, it will also be hidden from view in the app.
