Recent Updates

  • If your Assignments page includes a Roll Call Attendance assignment, your instructor is taking attendance in your course. As part of the assignment, you can view your attendance record in your course. Like any other Canvas assignment, you can also view or leave comments in the submission details page.

    If the Roll Call Attendance assignment is available to you, this lesson shows you how to view your attendance report through the Grades page. However, if your instructor allows you to view the Assignments link in Course Navigation, you can also access the submission details through the Assignments page by opening the Attendance assignment.

    Note: If the Roll Call Attendance assignment does not appear in the Grades page, your instructor has chosen to not use Attendance for grading.

  • As a student, if your instructor puts assignments into groups, you can view the assignments grouped by type.

  • The Global Activity Stream shows you important recent activities from all of your courses including announcements, discussions, assignments, and conversations. This stream is similar to the Course Activity Stream for an individual course.

    The following activities will cause notifications for each course to appear in the Global Activity Stream:

    • New Announcements
    • Replies to Announcements
    • New Discussions
    • New Discussion Posts
    • New Assignments
    • Assignments, Quizzes, or Discussions Changed from Ungraded to Graded
    • Due Date Changes to Assignments, Quizzes, and Discussions
    • New Graded Assignments
    • New Peer Review Assignments
    • New Conversation Messages

     

    Notes:

    • Notifications in the Global Activity Stream will not appear for activity in Files, Collaborations, Grades, Pages, or Conferences; ungraded quizzes and surveys; or edits to Discussions.
    • Edits to Quizzes and Assignments will only appear in the Global Activity Stream when the Notify users that this content has changed button has been selected in a course.

    How do I log out of Canvas as a student?

    When you are finished accessing Canvas, you can log out of your account.

  • You can access Canvas from any browser on your Android device. However, for the best user experience, you should view Canvas via the mobile app for Android devices.

    Please note that mobile browsers are not supported by Canvas, and features may not function as expected compared to viewing Canvas in a fully supported desktop browser. Canvas pages within a mobile browser are only supported when an action in the app links directly to the browser, such as when a student takes certain types of quizzes. Support is not extended to pages that cannot currently be used in the app, such as Conferences or Collaborations.

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

  • Download the Canvas by Instructure app on your iOS device for easier accessibility to course content.
