Users

Student Context Cards

The Teacher app supports context cards for students in a course. Context cards provide teachers with a simplified overview of student information and can be viewed by tapping a student’s name from People, assignment submissions list, SpeedGrader, SpeedGrader comments, inbox messages, announcement replies, and discussion replies.

 

Student context cards display a student’s email address, section, last activity date/time, submission details, grade, and submission details.

 

 

Teachers can send a message to a student from their context card. When the context card is opened from the People page, teachers can also open student submissions by tapping the submission.

 

Like in the web version of Canvas, teachers can still view data for other user roles but can only view the user’s email address, section, and last activity date.
