How do I reply to a discussion in the Canvas Student app on my Android device?
You can reply to a discussion within the Canvas Student app.
The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
Note: The process of responding to a focused discussion or a threaded discussion is the same, although the layout of the discussion may look different depending on the depth of the discussion thread.
In the Dashboard, tap the name of the course you'd like to view.
Open Course Navigation
Tap the Course Navigation menu.
Tap the Discussions link.
To view a discussion thread, tap the name of the thread.
To reply to a focused discussion, tap the message field at the bottom of the post.
Reply to Threaded Discussion
If you want to reply to a comment made by another user, tap the heading of the user's comment.
The post will expand. Then tap the message field at the bottom of the post.
Note: If the post does not expand, the thread you selected is not a threaded discussion.
If your course allows attachments in discussions, you can add an attachment by tapping the Attachment icon. You can attach a file or upload video or audio.
When you are finished, tap the Send icon.
