"Canvas Teacher" - the New Mobile App for Teachers!

I am excited to share with you information about the new mobile app for teachers “Canvas Teacher”, introduced at InstructureCon 2017 this summer! It allows teachers to facilitate their courses on-the-go from their mobile devices by providing a quick access to grading submissions, communicating with students, and updating course content through Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes.

  • Teachers can browse submissions and provide feedback (annotations, comments, etc.) to their students with a new and improved mobile SpeedGrader embedded in the app.
  • Teachers can post announcements, send messages, and participate in course discussions. Canvas Teacher includes the Message Students Who feature from the web version of Canvas and allows teachers to easily send messages to students about specific course assignments.
  • Teachers can easily update course content such as due dates and spelling errors. They can also publish assignments, manage discussion settings, and adjust quiz options.

The program can be downloaded from iTunes store to iOS devices, and from Play store to Android devices.
