Once you download the Canvas Teacher app from the Play store, you can use the app to log in to your Canvas account.

The Teacher app will ask you for the name of your institution to find your Canvas account. If the app cannot find your institution, you can use your institution's Canvas URL to log in.

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

Note: If you do not want to locate your Canvas URL every time you log in to Canvas, you can switch to another account.
