    For instructors, all quizzes are displayed in the web version of Canvas.

    You can easily skip to another question or flag a question in the app. For timed quizzes, the app allows you to turn the timer on and off.

  • Catalog users (including users of Canvas Network) can drop courses or programs from the Catalog dashboard. You can only drop a course while it is in progress, which means the course is between the course start date and end date. Catalog users can also drop programs as well.

    Courses can only be dropped if you enrolled in the course through Catalog. If you were manually added to the course by an instructor, you will have to ask the instructor to remove you from the course.
