How do I create a Discussion in the Canvas Student app on my Android device?
If an instructor allows, students may be able to create new discussions. However, student discussions are always published immediately to the course. If you cannot create a discussion, your instructor has restricted this feature.
The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
In the Dashboard, tap the name of the course you'd like to view.
Tap the Discussions link.
Tap the Add icon.
Create a title for your discussion in the Title field . Enter the details of your discussion in the Message field .
If you want to allow your discussion to allow threaded replies, tap the Allow Threaded Replies checkbox .
When you are finished, tap the Send icon .
