How do I create a Panda avatar in the Student app on my Android device?

If your institution allows profile pictures, you can create a Panda avatar on the Canvas Student app. You can save the Panda avatar as your profile picture on the mobile app, or share it with others.

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

Note: Changing your profile picture in the app will also change the profile picture in the browser version of Canvas.
