Canvas Mobile App Resources
Canvas offers mobile apps for students and instructors; instead of opening Canvas within a mobile browser, it is recommended that users download the instructor app ("Canvas Teacher") or student app ("Canvas"). Visit the Apple or Google Play store on your smartphone to download the app, and take a look at the Canvas Community's Mobile Guides for support!
