How do I use the Teacher app on my Android device?

As an instructor, you can use the Canvas Teacher app to access and manage course content while you are away from a computer browser. The app displays your profile, To Do list, Conversations Inbox, and functionality to access your courses.

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

Note:

  • Not all Canvas features are supported on the app at this time.
  • The Canvas Teacher app uses your device's settings to set the time zone used within the app.
