Canvas Teacher allows teachers to facilitate their courses on the go, both inside and outside the classroom. This app provides quick access to grading, communicating, and updating—three of the most frequent course facilitation tasks for teachers through Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes.

Canvas Teacher requires a Canvas account. If you are an instructor and your institution does not use Canvas, sign up for a Free for Teacher account.

Canvas Teacher is available for both Android and iOS devices.


Student Submission

Teachers can browse submissions and provide feedback to their students with a new and improved mobile SpeedGrader embedded in the app.


Student Messages

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.


Assignment Details

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.
