In this Canvas Teacher update, the app supports late penalties created in the New Gradebook, push notifications, To Do list notification badges, and a User Menu. Admins can use the Act as User link in the User Menu to act as another user in the app.
Download the Canvas Teacher app in the Google Play store. Version 1.4 requires Android 5.0 or later.
Late Submission Penalties
The Grades tab supports late penalties for student grades. Student grades with late penalties display the score given by the instructor, the late penalty, and the final grade, which is the score minus the penalty.
Late policies can only be managed using the New Gradebook in the browser version of Canvas.
The User Menu has replaced the Profile Menu in the Dashboard. From the User Menu, teachers can access app settings, change users, or log out of the app.
To Do Icon Badge
The To Do List supports notification badges for To Do items. The To Do notification badge displays the number of items that need grading for all assignments.
Push notifications are supported on Android devices. Tapping a push notification will open the app and display the page that relates to the notification. Push notification preferences can only be managed from the browser version of Canvas.
Act as User
Admins can use the Act as User link in the User Menu to act as a user in the Teacher app. While acting as the user, a magenta border displays in every page.
